Bill Kristol: On the Train to Delusionville
Bill Kristol: On the Train to Delusionville

The Huffington Post
By Arianna Huffington
Posted July 16, 2007 | 12:45 PM (EST)

I know it's a pretty high bar, but Bill Kristol, the founder of the Project for a New American Century that spawned the Iraq war, the man whose editorials often seem to be inserted directly into the president's speeches, and who once boasted that "Dick Cheney does send over someone to pick up 30 copies of every Monday," has now just written the single most deceptive piece of the entire war.

The charitable view is that he's lost his mind. The less charitable view is that he's now officially surpassed Dick Cheney as the most intellectually dishonest member of the neocon establishment (the highest of all high bars). The truth-shattering piece appeared yesterday on the front page of the Washington Post Outlook section. It is entitled "Why Bush Will Be A Winner."

1. from his online chat from today.
Alexandria, Va.:"First, no second terrorist attack on U.S. soil -- not something we could have taken for granted."

Ever since I bought this tiger-repelling rock I have not been attacked by a tiger, hence the rock is clearly working.


ZING!

3. No attacks?!?! No attacks?!?!
Well, what about those homeless guys in Florida who were going to blow up the Sears Tower? Just as soon as they could get the bus fare to Chicago?

And, and, what about them guys who were going to blow up all that airplane gas? Just as soon as they could get someone to join them who knew how to do it?

And those Aqua Teen bot guys in Philly. Now there was a threat! Traffic was tied up for ages I hear.


And those guys with the cigar-speed boats in Miami? Naw, okay that one was definitely a dud.

Hmmm.... say, where can I get one of those tiger-repelling rocks?

:sarcasm:

2. Many years ago, I took a dose of acid that . . .
Induced a lengthy conversation with the hypercubous W.C. Fields who juggled ceaselessly on the inside of my dorm room door from inside a garishly printed poster. As best I can recall, the conversation was deep and far ranging, and included the solution to the unanswered parts of the Unified Field Theory, why the sky was up, and how to get Rachel Beecham next door into my bed.

Now I know what happened to the rest of my stash. Surprising it was still potent after all these years.

Mr. Kristol, if you've got any left, I'd like it returned.

4. Its too bad you didn't write those....
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 06:29 PM by DeSwiss
...unanswered parts of the Unified Field Theory down. It might explain why there's a Bill Kristol at all. Or at least show us how to go back in time and prevent him from happening....





on edit: spelling police

5. He once made a statement on the Daily Show
"I'm not in Washington now so I can be truthful" Pretty much tells it all.

9. I'd say he was an "atypical" RW lying liar....
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 06:52 PM by DeSwiss
...because he helped to launch the think tank (Project for a New American Century) which found, developed and infected the whole nation with the neocons bastards -- who in turn gave us all this death and deception.

And I'd also say that he's an asshole. But that's just me.



on edit: spelling -- again. Okay I've been at it too long. Time for a break....
