Why William Kristol Will Be Committed Within 18 Months

The twenty-words-or-less summary of Mr. Kristol's opinion piece: "It really hasn't been such a bad presidency...all you have to do is use your imagination." That's what it's come to, eh? Shooting rainbows up the asses of the dwindling lot of True Believers? Was this administration ever about anything else? Because the ghosts of several thousand dead soldiers and civilians would like to have a heart-to-heart with you on a few points you bring up.

Here's a bit of wind to blow up your skirt, for instance:
Even at Bush's current low point in popularity, the leading GOP presidential candidates are competitive in the polls with Democratic Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. Furthermore, one great advantage of the current partisan squabbling in Washington is that while it hurts Bush, it also damages the popularity of the Democratic Congress-- where both Clinton and Obama serve. A little mutual assured destruction between the Bush administration and Congress could leave the Republican nominee, who will most likely have no affiliation with either, in decent shape.

So there is hope for another GOP prez in '08, and the only thing needed is the abject failure of both houses of Congress. Such a simple request. Of course, Mr. Kristol should've learned from his experience with Dubya that results don't matter as long as you've got character, but I don't want to give him ideas.

I'm just playing this for comedy, of course. You might want a more solidly grounded response (sort of).
