Okay, it's not as if Bill Kristol is actually in my home and I'm being forced to offer him a drink and appear civilized, if not actually cordial, while recoiling at his snide, cocky, right wing pronouncements. But today, The New York Times has deposited his pomposity at my door and he's on our breakfast table, transforming what had been a comfort zone into no man's land.
Kristol's introductory column supports and praises Huckabee. Bill Kristol studied science. He's not a religious zealot. How can he honestly support and defend a presidential candidate who doesn't believe in evolution? No, I don't really want to hear it. I don't want to hear anything from this smug, irritating man. I wonder if the Times would agree to remove the op-ed page from my paper on Mondays.
