More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Hmmm .... a dilemma, but I'm going with less-stupid.  Yeah, Billy boy!

    Hadda go with Kristol, as he is somewhat less washed-up.

      Because of Kristol's identification with supposed bastions of thought (the NYT hired him at one point, his Harvard degree) he has some residual potential to get himself taken seriously therefore more potential to do damage. Carlson is too identified with television and has not proved himself sufficiently enduring in that medium. The right would rather look at Sarah Palin even if she her sentence construction is not as good as his. Though he is developing a gross paunch, his know-it-all demeanor won't help him with the couch potatoes on the right.

      Carlson's in the same boat as Coulter.  The GoP has no interest in their "smartness"; that's not the direction they're headed.  It's not a problem for Kristol because he's already made his bones.

    This rec list diary of Tucker Carlson

    Apparently, the only place Carlson is more washed-up than Kristol is on the shores of a Dominican Republic sex-resort. Who'd a thunk it, with such a natty bow tie.

    PrezObama's only mistake in the sequester is that he assumed that the Republicans would be more loyal to their oath of office to serve the people than their oath to Norquist to never close tax loopholes.

  •  I predict that Tucker will come out.... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    ....during the competition. He will do so while CONDEMNING same sex marriage and being gay in general, while admitting he has been fucking some friar. This will ruin his chances with everyone but other friars.

    Kristol, on the other hand, is unshakeably odious and persists in his belief that the Iraq war was a GREAT idea. It wasn't but his persistence in this belief should have him scoring big and get the crowd (his crowd) on its feet. Gotta be Kristol.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

  •  tough matchup (0+ / 0-)

    bill "ive never been right about any fucking thing ever" kristol vs tucker "isnt he man pretty?" two of my personal favorite players.

    kristol takes it on smugness, he also has the better ball handle...though both are great at creating their own shots. i like bill kristol, hes such a fucking scumbag and idiot. hes tough though....he has survived this long without ever being right once

    to me..tucker has the open hand. first...he just so darn cute. second...he rebounds and finds the open man. three...he subscribed to ideological purity long before the tea party began tea bagging each other. plus we're about the same age and I remember him with the ridiculous fucking bow ties in the 90s and no man our age should wear one of those on national television and he is such a fucking dweeb that not only should he take this round that he should also be dumped head first into a garbage can

    I cant tell if its a West End musical or Marxism in action.

  •  Who made these brackets? (0+ / 0-)

    This is cruel.  Both Carlson and Kristol are far more odious than either O'Keefe or Lowry.

    But yeah, at the end of the day Tucker is mostly just  a dishonest, insufferable prig with a third-rate intellect whereas Kristol is a warmongering sociopath.

  •  Had to go with Tuckie (0+ / 0-)

    He used to be a halfway decent reporter—no, really! But I think his downward spiral has taken a toll on his sanity.

    The guy who exposed GW Bush's appalling mockery of Karla Faye Tucker is now defending his site's ridiculous Dominican hooker story.
