This is William Kristol’s last column.
-This appears below Kristol's column. Kristol himself said nothing about this being his last column. There was no thanks to the NY Times for the opportunity, or to anyone that he worked with. Just the usual drivel about how wonderful conservatism is, and wondering if Obama is up to the task of defending liberty. With, of course, absolutely no mention of the peril that liberty has been placed in by Kristol's compadres in the Bush administration.
I don't have William Kristol, but neither do I particularly respect him. He seems like he has a good sense of humor, but he also seems like someone who enjoys waging ideological battle than actually developing policies. People like Kristol are, I suppose, needed, but they do not have to be appreciated.
