Bill Kristol: Infallibly Wrong About Everything

Bill Kristol, Warmonger Extraordinaire, has managed to be so wrong so often about so many things that when he attacks something or somebody, it’s a kind of negative imprimatur.  No.  Really.  The guy has a sort of charism of wrongness:

Kristol wrong

So what is his Wrongitude up to now?  Why, joining up with McCain and Graham in denouncing Rand Paul’s attack on Obama police state powers and self-granted and secret 007 as unpatriotic.  Why he has been granted a national platform and is taken seriously by any on planet earth is beyond me. Somebody as consistently, infallibly, and colossally wrong as him would, in a sane world, have long ago been sent packing.  But in the bubble of unreal, self-constucted reality that is Bourbon Neoconnerie, there are no consequences and no admissions of fault.  Just blame assigned to other people for failing The Theory.  It is this, more than anything else, that shows the strange genetic affiliation Neocons have with Commies, who likewise have never been able to acknowledge that their perfect theory had “problems”.

Meanwhile, guys like this

get the real dynamic, not Left vs. Right but our Ruling Class on both sides of the aisle (with a few honorable exceptions on both sides of the aisle) vs. the rest of us.  It’s really simple: anybody in the Ruling Class who opposed Rand Paul’s point in this filibuster is an enemy of the United States of America and her people.  End of story.

    McCain, Graham et al also joined Obama on that bill allowing for indefinite detention of American Citizens too….
    As bad as Obama is, I’m beginning to see Glenn Beck’s point that his election may be a blessing in disguise, considering what McCain has been doing since. Not that Obama is a great guy, but he did wake up a large part of the population who might have remained asleep in complacency had McCain won.
    I agree. Let’s get the word out on the few good guys left in Congress.. On both sides of the Aisle. One question Mark, and it’s being asked in good faith. Can you tell us the names of ANY honourable Democrats? I can’t even think of one pro-life Democrat left, and that is one quality needed in order to be considered honourable, in my view.

    • Mark Shea

      My colleague here at Patheos, prolife Democrat Rebecca Hamilton, would be better to ask about that.

      • Mark S. (not for Shea)

        On the national level, I don’t know. But there are still lots of pro-life Democrats at the local and state levels. Even Mr. Shea’s home state has them.

    If only “Bourbon neoconnerie” would become the next American buzz-phrase!

  • Subsistent

    Altho NeoCons are not really conservative in the virtuous sense of tending to conserve whatever is good in tradition, they may be instances in support of Jacques Maritain’s theory (expressed in his book *Peasant of the Garonne*) that people tend, by inborn temperament, to be either “men of the Left” or “men of the Right”: i.e., either “Sheep of Panurge”, subservient to what they view as current public opinion; or else “Ruminators of the Holy Alliance”, concerned with what they view as their own security, even at the expense of other people’s rights, the world’s Bill Kristols being among the Ruminators.
    ’Twould seem that ev’ry man alive
    Is temper’d either “lib-er-al”
    Oe else is born “conserva-tive”.

    How is it that Bill Kristol has yet to realize that to become the most accurate pundit ever all he needs to do is write his columns and then have a editor edit them so they say the opposite of what he wrote?

  • Mark S. (not for Shea)

    At this point, I hope the nation takes Billy Crystal more seriously than Bill Kristol when it comes to foreign policy.

    Mark, I write to you as a friend:

    Leave bourbon out of this. It’s one of the few things we’re still doing right in this country.
