When’s that Contract Up?

Apparently, getting tired of lying about the same ol’ crap this week, Bill Kristol finds a whole new topic on which to suck. And suck he does:

…last week, in the midst of the excitement over the pope’s visit, the Clinton, Obama and McCain campaigns found time to issue Passover greetings. They were of course staff-produced, and somewhat formulaic. Still, differences among formulaic statements can be revealing.

What follows is the balance of a column in which Kristol provides an in depth analysis of each candidate’s staff statement and finds that John McCain’s retainers from AIPAC best understand how to write two sentences for Likud.

Not coincidentally, the McCain website also put up a special "long-time family recipe" for coconut macaroons from Cindy.

Well done, New York Times, well done — even Jonah Goldberg occasionally produces better material.

That’s not a suggestion for when Kristol’s contract is up.

Did Rice Just Provoke a Little War for McCain?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
