    Cherry-picking quotes from a pundit who makes a living writing aggressive, controversial columns... I don't care about Bill Kristol, and I certainly don't care about what an "honor" it is to "earn a column" in the Times's Op/Ed section.

    First off... Kristol is not a pundit. He has a doctorate in government from Harvard and has run a Neo-Conservative think tank for a number of years. His father Irving Kristol was one of the Neo-Conservative movements' pioneers. If you aren't familiar with the premises of Neo-Conservatism I recommend you read up on it... it's very interesting stuff especially if you've done some grad work in Political Science. Bill Kristol was also VP Quayle's Chief of Staff.

    Second, you call that cherry-picking? Those quotes summarize everything Kristol has been saying for 4 years. Let's call a spade a spade... no one has been more wrong on this thing than Bill Kristol and the neo-cons. If you read his recent op-ed pieces in the Times, he's basically falling all over himself regarding the Surge's military achievements.

    If you don't accept my word on it than look up Francis Fukuyama, a former neo-conservative scholar who withdrew his support of the Iraq war after several policy decisions by the Bush Administration. He wrote a great article, which I doubt you'll complete if read at all.

    Maybe you should care about Bill Kristol and Neo-Conservatism... it's been dominating our Foreign Policy for 8 years.

    No, he was serious. Kristol wanted Bush appointed supreme commander for life.

    Here is the direct quote: [I]"Suffice it to say I am not alone in wanting George Bush named Supreme Commander of the United States for life, we will see this through." [/I]

    He said that.
