Nation Editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel Literally Defenestrates Bill Kristol
Normally we would rather flay the skin off our balls with a wire brush than watch This Week with George Stephahoozywhat or any of the other Sunday morning bloviation-fests, but yesterday would have been almost worth it just to see Katrina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation, put bloodthirsty twatwaffle Bill Kristol on the spot over his past “all war all the time” cheerleading.
If there are no regrets for the failed assumptions that have grievously wounded this nation -- I don’t know what happened to our politics and media accountability, but we need it, Bill. Because this country should not go back to war. We don’t need armchair warriors, and if you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi Army.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, with the exception that we would have replaced “with all due respect” with “you soft-headed buzzard who couldn’t at this point clean all the blood off your hands if you set them on fire.” And we might have mentioned that if there was media accountability, Bill Kristol wouldn’t be able to get a job reading crop reports on a 30-watt AM station in Skidmark, Nebraska. Otherwise, spot-on.
We highly recommend watching the above clip, if only to see Bill Kristol sputter with outrage at the impudence of someone finally, about twelve years too late, telling him to take his war jones and shove it up his amply sized ass.
President Bush made mistakes, he was punished for those mistakes electorally as he should have been in 2006, and perhaps in 2008. He also had the courage to order the surge in 2007, which made up for those mistakes, and left things peaceful. This president pulled out of Iraq in 2011, he let the Syrian civil war explode, and now we have a terrible situation.
Yeah, it took so much courage for President Bush, having already flushed hundreds of billions of dollars down the toilet, to throw a few more million at the various factions in Iraq to get them to stop killing each other just long enough for us to get our troops out of there. Which anyone with half a brain could have seen coming before the invasion in 2003, but Bush and Kristol don’t have half a brain between them, so here we are.
We’re all in favor of the Sunday shows continuing to invite on liberals who will actually tell neocon hacks like Bill Kristol to slurp shit and die. It’s entirely too rare an occurrence for our liking.
