Bill Kristol: If They Get To Nominate Hillary Clinton, Why Don't We Get To Nominate Dick Cheney?

Bloody Bill Kristol with the false equivalency of the day.

Here's Bloody Bill Kristol with the false equivalency of the day when asked who is the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet by This Week host George Stephanopoulos:

STEPHANOPOULOS: One final question for each of you, who is the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet?

SOLTIS-ANDERSON: Oh, gosh, not in the race yet? Well, almost none of them are in the race yet. I suppose Jeb Bush. He does the best in the polls and hasn't officially announced anything. So I'd give him as my answer.

BRAZILE: You know, I go back to Mitt Romney. I mean, look, you don't like old faces, but you know what he did run a good game last time.

SMILEY: It sound strange, but I still can't figure out why John Thune hasn't looked at this more seriously.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Oh, that's interesting.

KRISTOL: 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...


KRISTOL: He has a much better record...

SMILEY: God help us all.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Thanks a lot. I'm going to go with John Kasich.

Go for it Bill. He can pick his warmongering daughter for a running mate and we'll see how that works out for Republicans.

Can you help us out?
