The Times seems to have decided when it hired Kristol that what the page needed was a direct channel to Conservative Movement Central Command or something, but it would be easy enough to save money and just republish Bill O’Reilly transcripts occasionally if that’s what you want to do.
That says better than I did what the real complaint about Kristol is -- it's not the political leanings we mind, it's the lack of worthwhile argument that he, and people like him, offer.
