William Kristol - Dangers of Affirmative Action


Bill Kristol Discovers That Obama Is a Muslim Communist!

Dumbest Intellectual Alive William Kristol

The New York Times has done it again. Doesn't that paper have any editors? Why not just hire Bill O'Reilly and get it over with?

This is what happens when newspapers use quotas to fill their positions for reasons of political "diversity." We end up with nitwits like Bill Kristol polluting the pages of political punditry.

In case you missed it, William Kristol, the "neo-conservative" columnist for the NYT, has reviewed the recent observations of Barack Obama that people who are out of work and in financial distress may take comfort in their church. After allegedly reviewing his old college text, The Marx-Engels Reader (apparently even Harvard doctoral programs don't bother to make their students read original texts), Mr. Kristol squeezed his eyebrows together real hard until an idea popped out. When poor people go to church and feel better, that's Communism! Or maybe Capitalism. Or maybe it's what Communists say about Capitalism. Or something.

Who knew?

So obviously Obama is a Communist. Or else he's calling people in Pennsylvania Communists. Or else he's calling churches Capitalists. Or he's saying if you go to Church then you are a Capitalist patsy. Who loves guns.

Well, whatever Bill means, what we can take away from his otherwise nonsensical column is that obviously Obama said a very bad thing, and he is obviously very bad, and probably a Communist product of a Muslim school. Like Columbia or Harvard.

Kristol Pie

Well , guess what? A lot of people live hand to mouth in this country. And they are patriotic. Do you know what some of them believe in? God, family, and country. And when times are hard and money is low, people can still go to church, they still have their family, and they can still be thankful and proud to be an American. That's what I thought about when I heard Barack's comments. I think he spoke the truth.

I think it's the people who are trying to twist his words who are being elitist.

And about the guns. Do you know why a lot of people like guns? Not so they can kill a deer once a year, though that's the reason for some people. But for many it just makes them feel safe. It makes them feel independent. That's important.

I'll bet Limbaugh and Hannity and O'Reilly are already babbling ad infinitum about Kristol's point, and that "liberals" are elitists who will disagree thus proving their elitism. So there!

I swear, it's like watching bullshit in a blender.

Okay; I can admit that the Rev. Wright saga may reflect badly on Senator Obama (though I believe the grace, eloquence, and courage with which he responded to the commotion more than overcame any negative associations). This latest one, though, has me completely stumped. I've read and re-read Senator Obama's comments, and I just honestly don't see what all the fuss is about.

This is one of my least favorite parts of politics, where everyone bends over backwards to distort one another's views rather than having an intelligent debate. Who among us really believes that Barack Obama -- the product of unusual and humble circumstances, the former community organizer, the black guy in the race, for God's sake -- is so much less a "person of the people" than the other presidential candidates that we should make a decision on this basis. What a load of crap!

I'll still vote for her if she's the nominee, but I've got to tell you -- I used to have a much better opinion of Hillary Clinton than I do now.
