But do you like him?  
Blow me, you monstrous, bloodthirsty fraud, you silly, stupid chickenhawk motherfker who plays army man with the children of people who are so much better than you are, and who would feed innocent civilians in lands you will never visit into your own personal meatgrinder to service your semi-annual martial erection. You and the rest of your cowardly cohort helped prepare the ground for the worst geopolitical mistake the country has made in 30 years. You fought the battle of the Green Rooms and the think tanks while other people's sons and daughters died for your fantasy of how the world would work if you really were the pimply, adolescent Zeus you see when you look in the mirror every morning. The country does not need you lectures any more. The country does not need your counsel. The country does not need your advice. And, as sure as human beings have become dead because of your lectures, and counsel, and advice, human beings about whom you otherwise care nothing, the country does not need your hectoring that it has become insufficiently bellicose to fulfill your newest, blood-drenched fantasies. Even here, even now, you hide behind the skirts of a woman from Indiana who, while I believe her to be wrong, seems to be genuine in her beliefs. You are unworthy of her intellectual camouflage. You should be driven from polite society, consigned to an ideological Molokai so you can no longer infect the rest of us. People should shun you. You should wear the bell for the rest of your miserable days.
--Charles Pierce on William Kristol

Somebody had to say it.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I've felt about Kristol since I worked as an operations analyst back in the early 90s. I daresay most of my fellow Marine analysts had a similarly low opinion of him. He's the sort of blowhard who would happily build a reputation on a mountain of dead Marines' dogtags.

Ouch - were Kristol wise, that would sting more than Pierce's comments.

I point you to this DailyKos post, mainly for Tom Tomorrow's cartoon panel.

Hmm. That was not meant as a direct reply. Apologies.
