This is the second time in recent memory that Bill Kristol has advocated something counter-intuitive to the GOP's position, which is interesting because Bill Kristol is never right about anything.

Ever.

No, seriously. I have never seen a pundit, journalist, critic or political commentator that is more habitually wrong than him. Every prediction, every claim, every assertion he makes is always wrong.

I think he knows this now, so he's deliberately advocating the opposite of what he wants to happen in hopes of being wrong about it.

Aaron Haynes: theknuckler_33: The only reason Clinton didn't achieve that is because of Ross Perot.

Yeah, but that's like saying "The only reason he didn't get 50% of the vote is because not enough people voted for him."

Ok, listen people. We have GOT to stop telling the GOP why they lost this election. While it is true that they have spent the last 8 years in a political echo chamber - making up facts willy-nilly to conform to their own world views - it isn't until recently that those in power in the GOP actually started believing their own BS. The fact is, unpleasant as they may be, they are not stupid - their base is stupid but not them. We cannot let them learn from their mistakes. So, from now on when asked your opinion on why they got totally shellacked, plead ignorance. Say something like "Gee, boss, I don't know why you lost. Your policies and ideas are brilliant. You really should have won. It must have been a glitch in the Matrix or something, Boss." Got it? We can't afford for them to learn and adapt. They are too dangerous to teach.

clkeagle: Loaded Six String: Depending on which Roosevelt, Ike's probably my favorite on the list.

Unless 2012 - 1904

Yeah, seems a bit silly, don't it?

Who said this again?

Who?

The actor?

No?

Bill "My crystal Ball is always broken" Kristol said this?

Did Bill just learn he has inoperable brain cancer or has the 7th seal finally crumbled into dust?

I think that is obviously definitive proof of widespread, rampant voter fraud. We all know that no real American would have voted for that socialist sheriff who is near. 0bummer probably had closer to 10% in actual, legal votes. The rest was due to Acorn registering cartoon characters and dead people and then having them vote numerous times. The Soros-controlled liberal media will never report it though, they just call the election for the Kenyan usurper and expect us to believe it, and most of you sheeple just buy it. Not me! I know the truth! Save us, Fox News!!!!

But he encouraged McCain to pick Palin as his running mate. So he's got that going for him.

I was born in '82. Even as a young child, I could tell that the '80s were a screwed-up time to be alive, even if I didn't know that it was the unholy duo of Reagan and Thatcher that were determined to make everything terrible.
