Good News: The New York Times Hires Bill Kristol!

Bill Kristol will soon have a weekly column in the New York Times. I have to admit, I’m really excited.

You see, Bill Kristol, or as we like to call him Krissandra has a nearly supernatural ability to be wrong. While some might think that the NYT has lost all credibility by hiring someone as unrepentantly incorrect as Kristol, I think they’re providing a valuable service.

After all, if we see what Bill Kristol has to say, we always will know that we should do the opposite. He’s not a worthless idiot, he’s actually a very useful one, simply because he’s so consistently incorrect.


  1. I honestly can’t understand why people like Kristol are still provided a forum and treated seriously. Has he been right about anything in the past six or eight years?

  2. Kristol has his status in the foreign policy punditocracy mainly because he echos the zeitgeist of the chattering class and, occasionally, offers some original rationalizations to the mix. Same with Kagan, O’Hanlon, Krauthammer, Ferguson, and the rest of militarist gaggle. They’re not hired to be right, they’re hired to tell the occupants of the Village what they want to hear.

  3. The NYT sure is a bastion of liberalism. [/snark]

  4. One thing is for sure, Mr. Kristol will feel right at home with fellow morons Maureen Dowd and Tom Friedman.
