Download John Amato: Here's a mash up clip C&L did with the Huffington Post on William the Bloody Kristol after he got the NY Times gig. (h/t Scarce)
Bill Kristol’s inaugural column in the paper of record confirms the concerns of critics. It’s filled with the kind of far-right talking points that one has come to expect from the Weekly Standard editor.
How bad is it? Let's see:
* It's filled with cliched, hackneyed writing.
* It quotes Michelle Malkin.
* It quotes Michelle Malkin incorrectly.
There's some interest in Kristol's willingness to support Mike Huckabee, despite the GOP establishment's reservations, but on the whole, it's the kind of piece that will continue to make NYT readers wonder what the newspaper was thinking.
