Thank you, Senator Obama. You’ve defeated Senator Clinton in Iowa. It looks as if you’re about to beat her in New Hampshire. There will be no Clinton Restoration. A nation turns its grateful eyes to you.
But gratitude for sparing us a third Clinton term…
—President Mike Huckabee, Bill Kristol, New York Times
The rumors of Hillary’s political death were greatly exaggerated, to quote Mark Twain. Twain was a great one to poke fun at the pompous and we can only wish he were here to do the same to Bill Kristol.
So let’s see, Kristol was wrong about Clinton, wrong about WMD, wrong about Iraq in general. What has he ever been right about? I hope there’s a NY Times editor ruing the day they hired Kristol right about now. But it will probably take another hundred Kristol mistakes like this one before the Times figures out its own mistake a la Judith Miller.
