Pink elephant
Either Kristol is drunk or ...
William Kristol, noted neo-con and editor of The Weekly Standard, has two major claims to fame: Being the head cheerleader for both the war in Iraq—because they absolutely, positively had weapons of mass destruction—and the push to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency. So, how will he top those two craptacular errors in judgement? By dusting off the former half-term governor and trying to again foist Palin onto the country:
During an exclusive to web interview with “This Week,” Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said Sarah Palin — after having hastily stepped down as Alaska’s governor in 2009 – might be able to rehabilitate her political career by winning a Senate race in her home state next year.
(Okay, are you done laughing? Let's continue.) To be fair, Kristol does recognize that this wouldn't be easy, but it's doable:
“I think stepping down as governor of Alaska was a big problem ... That I think is something she has to recover from in terms of being a serious leader in the party. She still has a lot of loyalty, she can still shape the debate, she has a great political touch,” he said.
(Resume laughing.)

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.
