Kristol meth

All you really need to know about neocon Bill Kristol's latest column in the Washington Post: It's titled "Why Bush Will Be A Winner." Unless he just bought a scratch-off lottery ticket at the 7-Eleven, I find that doubtful.

"I suppose I'll merely expose myself to harmless ridicule if I make the following assertion: George W. Bush's presidency will probably be a successful one," begins the column.

No, I would expose myself to harmless ridicule if I asserted that Paris Hilton had some sort identifiable talent. For your constant support of this ridiculous regime, Mr. Kristol, you deserve to be tarred and feathered.

But that's not why I'm posting the link to the column. I'm posting the link because of the (at present) 245 pages of comments that follow. There might be one or two notes of support in there, but I can't find them. The outpouring of disdain for this wrong-at-every-point pundit is just plain wonderful to behold.

Oh, I've got some leftover tar in the garage. Anyone got any extra feathers?

OK. I saw the headline for the piece. I didn't read it because? Well, I don't read fiction during the day.

So you're making me go read it and 245 comments? Give me the Cliff Notes. I'll be very grateful.

Intellectuals make idiotic political observers. Jean-Paul Sartre made a special trip to Kruschev's USSR and returned to Europe to tell all of the disillusioned Marxists that things behind the Iron Curtain were just swell.

When Bill Kristol gets to Hades, he should look up Sartre - they'll have a lot to talk about.
