Bill Kristol’s got his first column up in the Times today. And he comes out swinging. His column’s main point: Huckabee might be the best nominee the GOP has to offer. It’s a doozy.
Here’s a preview of his twisted world-view:
But gratitude for sparing us a third Clinton term only goes so far. Who, inquiring minds want to know, is going to spare us a first Obama term? After all, for all his ability and charm, Barack Obama is still a liberal Democrat. Some of us would much prefer a non-liberal and non-Democratic administration. We don’t want to increase the scope of the nanny state, we don’t want to undo the good done by the appointments of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, and we really don’t want to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory in Iraq.
That’s right kids. Vote democrat and we lose in Iraq. Funny – I thought we were already doing that now.
