I had to look twice to make sure that it wasn't a New Year's joke by The Onion, but no, the NYT really gave Krazy Kristol a gig as a regular columnist. Billy Kristol, a pundit so pointlessly ponderous and profoundly wrong about everything, and whose inane bleatings are so poorly written, if we didn't already have the word banal in the dictionary, we would have had to invent it to describe his diatribes, has just been given the deed to a prime piece of media real estate.
Kristol!?! A pundit so embarrassing that Time magazine, who continues to keep clueless Joe Klein on the roster, fired him, and he gets his own soapbox at the former newspaper of record? If the NYT's goal was to destroy their credibility and become the laughingstock of the media industry, they've succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.
