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.
