Bye bye, Bill January 26, 2009Posted by Evil Bender in News and politics, wingnuts.
William Kristol’s latest column in the NYT, is, as you would expect, useless drivel from the man who, in his eagerness to defend the disasters of the Bush administration, has been wrong about everything. His column is generally forgetable, where he both suggests President Obama’s inauguration marks the end of a conservative era stretching back to 1980, and yet also suggests Obama’s speech is “implicitly conservative,” a conclusion at which he arrives by blindly claiming that, against all evidence, it is conservatives who wish to protect the founding documents of the country and who believe in personal responsibility. After eight years of Bush, a more reasonable person might have been ashamed to peddle such bullshit. But not Bill Kristol.
So why am I bothering with Kristol’s latest, predictable and entirely unremarkable, column?
This is William Kristol’s last column.
No doubt the Times will muck this up by hiring someone almost as embarrassing as Kristol to replace him. But unless they’re hoping to hire Jonah Goldberg, they’d be hard pressed to do worse.
Buh-bye, Bill! Enjoy wingnut welfare. I’m sure the Discovery Institute and the Heritage Foundation still have openings.
