Your Bill Kristol Error Of The Week
In the third sentence of his column today,New York Times "lightning rod conservative" Bill Kristol hilariously calls himself "your diligent columnist." This, perhaps knowingly, wonderfully set up his weekly error and scandalous cover-up.
From today's print edition of his column:
NBC's Andrea Mitchell reported on "Meet the Press" that "the Obama people must feel that he didn't do quite as well as they might have wanted to in that context. ... What they're putting out privately is that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama."
That's pretty astonishing, since there seems to be absolutely no basis for the charge.
But oh look, there's an article in "his" very newspaper today, the New York Times, proving that McCain wasn't in Jesus' Silence Cone listening to ABBA, as is his usual Saturday night activity.
Oh brother, it's time to edit the version online, mmhmm yes it is, throw in some ellipses and shit:
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reported on “Meet the Press” that “the Obama people must feel that he didn’t do quite as well as they might have wanted to in that context. ... What they’re putting out privately is that McCain ... may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama.”
There’s no evidence that McCain had any such advantage.
No correction is listed.
We now know, for a fact, that McCain heard every question beforehand and deviously planned his answers and dumb jokes -- because Bill Kristol said he didn't.
