    Well, their consistently lousy judgment won't be on display, anymore, at this particular venue:

  2. Oh, I thought this was supposed to be a thread about how the Dems in the Senate are trying to get Robert Byrd out of his leadership position.

    Even if I don't always agree with him, I don't have a problem with Krauthammer. Actually I like reading him. Kristol may as well change his name to Baghdad Bill for the GOP.

    Unfortunately, I'm sure reality will continue to elude both of them.

    Krauthammer disturbs me physically. There is something about the way a suit sits on him that makes me think ventriloquist dummy. Other than that, I enjoyed his candor in the story. I like people like this. 'Asked if he would have preferred to stay with the magazine, Mr. Krauthammer, a Pulitzer Prize winner who writes a regular column for The Washington Post, suggested there wasn’t much of a choice. “It’s a hypothetical that didn’t arise,” he said.'
  6. Are you aware he's confined to a wheelchair?

    So the public embarrassment that is Time Magazine will no longer taint the reputations of the two men. Good for them.

    Kristol disturbs me physically. Every time I see him on TV I want to smash the fucker in the face with frying pan.

    It's that smug look on his face. Looks like the type of guy who would run away from a fight.

    I wouldn't wish CK's physical condition on anyone.

    But there's no excuse for anyone to remain that mistaken, to the extent in question, for this length of time, in a public forum.

    Experience can be a great teacher . . . but some folks don't learn, easy.

    He looks a lot like the smart-ass kid in the school yard who always thought he was smarter than you. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Kristol.
