UPDATED below. It wasn't easy, but I read all of today's Bill Kristol column in the NYT. But the last line made my suffering worthwhile:
"This is William Kristol’s last column."
It's a big day. For some reason, known only to a few, this country's most ignorant, most consistently wrong pundit will no longer be flinging poo on our most prestigious op-ed page. His contract won't be renewed.
I urge you all to head over to the NYT and comment on Kristol's final steaming pile. My comment appears after the jump.
"Reagan, though he once told Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir that he had personally liberated concentration camps, in fact served during World War II at the Hal Roach Studios (known as 'Fort Wacky') in Culver City, Calif., making motivational movies such as 'This Is the Army.'"
Much like his hero Saint Ronnie, Kristol is adept at simply creating his own reality out of whole cloth. Perhaps the reality he is partially responsible for - hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, thousands of dead soldiers, and an economy wrecked by an anti-regulatory ideology - is too much for him to wrap his head around. Ignorance is, I suppose, bliss.

One can only hope that other media outlets wise up and send this shitstain of a man packing. It's difficult to think of a human being responsible for more damage than Kristol.

But it appears that Kristol’s tirades against all things progressive have found a new home. Politico’s “Playbook” reports this morning that “he’s now beginning a monthly column in The Washington Post.” Aside from the monotony of Kristol’s opinion pieces, it might be worth reminding the Post’s editors and readers what they’re in for: factual errors.
