Quote Of The Day

From Charles P. Pierce, who's assessment of the current race for the Republican candidate for President is both entirely correct, and viciously, bleakly hilarious:
If Bill Kristol went to the track, he'd bet on the fucking starting gate.
Kristol only has a tangential part to play in both the article and the topic it covers, but since he insisted on taking credit for Sarah Palin showing up on the national radar, he certainly deserves some blame for the freak show we're currently watching. 

And it simply cannot be said enough: Bill Kristol is the anti-Cassandra, repeatedly cited and asked for comment when the man's predictive powers aren't merely random, they're perfectly calibrated to choose any option but the right one. If Bill Kristol picked up a bridge hand to see thirteen spades staring back at him, he'd bet eight no trumps.  He'd also immediately redouble when you called him on it, and argue that the bridge itself would never be safe from terrorism unless we bomb Tehran within the next 24 hours.
