You really should be sitting down for this one. And don’t drink anything while you read it, as I’m not responsible for any soaked monitors or keyboards. Bill Kristol, the wrongiest pundit in all the land, says he thinks Dick Cheney would make a formidable candidate in 2016.
Prompted by host George Stephanopoulous to name “the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet,” panel members named Jeb Bush — who has yet to announce — with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile suggesting 2012 GOP nominee, Mitt Romney…“If they get to nominate Hillary Clinton, why don’t we get to nominate Dick Cheney? I mean, he has a much… he has a much better record,” Kistol said as the entire panel burst into laughter.
“He has a much better record,” Kristol repeated as Smiley mock lamented, “God help us all.”
It’s probably worth noting that Kristol also thought Sarah Palin was the best choice to be McCain’s VP nominee. And that he’s wrong about everything.
