At YKos, a prominent TIME person told me to renew my subscription.  “We want you back,” this person said.

I said, “Bill Kristol?” 

Then I asked, after a few more drinks, “Are you telling me I’m not the only one that cancelled their subscription (Ed:  Mine was 20 years or so) because you hired B.K.?”

“You’re not the only one.”

And now ol’ blood-loving, wrong every time Bill Kristol gets a job at the “liberal” NY Times.  One thing I love about the “intellectual” moniker, pause for money quote:

“The idea that The New York Times is giving voice to a guy who is a serious, respected conservative intellectual — and somehow that’s a bad thing,” Rosenthal added. “How intolerant is that?”

…that gets passed around so liberally, *cough* is that if Bill Kristol is defined as an “intellectual,” I’m among the smartest people on the fucking planet.  If I were as wrong as Kristol has been, as consistently as he as been, about as many things as he has been, I would’ve been on an unemployment line about 15 years ago.  I don’t have a wingnut welfare gig, nor a famous father, nor a love of war (thus ratings, thus money).

Thanks to Dr. Black, who also has this right.  When your world-view is as grossly twisted as Kristol’s, “intolerance” is a laughable criticism.  Respected by whom?  Other war-crazed, blood-loving–as long as it isn’t his–xenophobes?

My America is better than Bill Kristol’s.  And tougher, stronger, and smarter.

We are doomed as a nation when complete bloodthirsty lunatics get space on the NY Times Editorial page.  My money is in cash.

Bill Kristol:  Greatest patronage welfare recipient of all-time.

Kudos to the NY Times for showing their true colors. 

Vote with your wallet.

Update:  This is what I need to do to get a job at the New York Times?  Insinuate they should be prosecuted?  Rip them a new one?  Sign me the fuck UP.
