Kristol Meth

William Kristol on Fox News Sunday:

Above: William Kristol

We’re electing a war president in 2008. If I can go back to Obama and Lincoln for just one second, Lincoln’s “house divided” speech in 1858 was a speech saying we cannot live as a house divided on slavery. And he implicitly says well have to fight a civil war if necessary on this.

Obama’s speech is a “can’t we get along” speech–sort of the opposite of Lincoln. He would have been with Stephen Douglas in 1858.

Fine then. How about this instead?

Of strange, discordant, and even hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud, and pampered enemy.

Did we brave all them to falter now? — now, when that same enemy is wavering, dissevered, and belligerent? The result is not doubtful. We shall not fail — if we stand firm, we shall not fail. Wise counsels may accelerate, or mistakes delay it, but, sooner or later, the victory is sure to come.

Kristol, for one, is still disciplined, proud, and pampered, but even he seems to be turning desperately snappish at the notion of an Obama candidacy. If it starts in early 2007 with charges that Obama was trained at a terrorist madrasah, that he belongs to a black-supremacist church, and that he would have stood on the side of slavery, you have to wonder what the smears and insinuations will be like once the campaign season starts rolling.

Breakfast irony nugget: The ad in the right-hand bar was for Dinesh D’Souza’s Negrofascism.


Help me out. What is that thing called where you choose your talking points based on the race of your target?


I heard that William Krystol kicked puppies. Disfigured puppies that spawned from Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity breeding. I don’t know if that’s true, it’s just something I heard somewhere maybe.

By the way, it is incredibly weird to have a Dinesh D’Souza ad on your webpage.


They’re just helping out Dinesh with his next release before he even writes it.
See, I did the same with Mark “America Alone” Steyn:


I wonder if any of that pie got in his eyes or maybe a bit shoved up into the nasal cavity?

Its certainly nice to think so.


On one hand, I’m sure that none of the Fox viewers who watched Kristol make that analogy actually understand the events he’s referring to. On the other hand is a delicious piece of pie.

I rest my case.


Look, just google “Negrofascism” and see there is no linky to Amazon or any other bookseller – it is teh AWESOME photoshop skills of the SN! grand poobah Gavin I suspect.


BTW, that guy reminds me of Linc from the Mod Squad…


Someone remind me: Kristol is credible to speak about … what exactly?


Um… they’re reaching back to before the Civil War for their historical justifications now?



BTW, that guy reminds me of Linc from the Mod Squad…

It’s Rob Williams. Check out “Negroes with Guns.”


They wanna talk Stephen Douglas, the ‘can’t we all just get along?’ guy?

I can do that.

I believed then, as I now do, that I expressed the sound constitutional principles on which alone the government can exist. As to hanging, the Senator was under some misapprehension, or his mind asserts of a character which magnifies one man to two men. I only spoke of hanging one person, and that in a certain contingency.– And I did say, that if Mr. Lincoln should be elected President according to the Constitutional forms, he must be inaugurated; and, under my constitutional duty, I would sustain him in the exercise of all legitimate duties of the station.

I then said, if, after he was elected, he should violate the constitution of the country, and commit crimes against the laws of the land, I should be for punishing him according to the law. And if the penalty under the Constitution be to hang him, I would hang him higher than Haman. I would have said the same thing of any other man who might abuse the trust reposed in him by the American people. I asserted it as a general principle.


What’s next? They’ll call Obama a chickenhawk. Especially if McCain is winning some of the first primaries. 100% guaranteed.


Speaking of kristol, you GOTTA read VD Hanson’s takedown of D’Souza out this morning. First, it’s oddly rational for that crazy old man. And even better, to see them start to eat each other is amusing…



The idea of Dan Riehl using the word ‘clit’ makes me want to projectile-vomit.

Herr Doktor Bimler

We’re electing a war president in 2008.
It would seem that there is no plan to win Bush’s wars in the next two years.
We’re electing a war president in 2012.
We’re electing a war president in 2016….


It would seem that there is no plan to win Bush’s wars in the next two years.

I respectfully disagree, Herr Doktor – he didn’t actually say this president would necessarily be presiding over the same wars. Gee Dubya showed us that what a “war president” does is start wars, and help himself to the absolute power guaranteed by the Constitution (cough cough!) in such circumstances.


Speaking of kristol, you GOTTA read VD Hanson’s takedown of D’Souza out this morning.

D’Souza fights back, not remembering the fact that he has titled his book The Enemy At Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11.


Wee Willie Kristol, recipient of the Biotic Baking Brigade’s 2005 Pie Award, U.S. spokesman for the Likud Party, truly amazes. He never quits peddling the line that more wars are needed in the middle east.
