Sometimes the jokes just write themselves. On FNS, Bill Kristol was furious that President Bush went to the Beijing Olympics instead of watching it on TV because of the propaganda value that Bush gave to China against the pro-democracy agenda.

Kristol: You can talk to human rights and pro democracy activists both in exile and over here and those over there. They did not want him to go and to legitimize what is a giant propaganda festival for Beijing.My wife told me I shouldn't say that I disapprove of Bush going, I disapprove of the dictatorship in Beijing. I disapprove of the totalitarian propaganda spectacle on Friday night. She said this would make me look "crotchety" ...

Kristol is the Minister of Propaganda at FOX so for him to complain about it really is high comedy. And I'll throw in the fact that his wife called him---errrr--crotchety. Yea, that too...

Can you help us out?
