If the inauguration wasn't enough to make you celebrate, this news may just light a candle on your melancholy cake.
Bill Kristol, the NYT columnist who made David Brooks look positively pundity, has called it quits. Kristol's columns were so devoid of fact that the casual reader might have thought they were written by Michelle Malkin high on internet Ritalin.
This is good news all around. Because now that Kristol's gone, the Times can use his valuable Op-Ed real estate to sell ShamWow!
Greg Mitchell has a suitably snarky adios for the K-man.
Here's just one fond remembrance of Bill Kristol, a man who, along with the former president, proved that if you have an influential conservative father, and you have no shame or standards, you can do anything half-assed and people will still pay you top dollar for it. Here's an actual quote from Bill's brain:
"The repercussions of globalizing the conflict between Hezbollah and Israel can only bring good things. On to Iran!"
Bill Kristol often wrote drunk, with his ass, in long-hand, but still found someone to publish it a few times a week. That's an accomplishment of sorts. I'd say we'll miss him, but I know that as long as there's a Fox News, he'll never really go away.
