I'm not sure what irritated me more about this segment of Fox News Sunday: Chris Wallace being a complete jerk to Kirsten Powers or William Kristol arguing for respect for the rule of law.

Would that be the same Kristol who thinks reading Miranda rights to suspected terrorists is wrong because they can get "lawyered up"? Or maybe it's the same Bill Kristol who was totally ok with warrantless wiretaps? Or maybe it's the guy who was outraged -- OUTRAGED -- that lawbreaker Scooter Libby did not receive a full pardon and pass for his breakage of that hallowed rule?

Of course, even the New York Times said he lacked a talent for solid opinion journalism. I'd argue that solid opinion journalism requires, at its core, intellectual honesty, something we shouldn't expect from a man who sold Sarah Palin to the Republican Party.

But in Bill Kristol's mind, the rule of law applies to immigrants, but not citizens. Got it. - Live Donations Tracking for 2012 Donations - Make a Donation to 2012 Donations
