No More Kristol

News Item: Bill Kristol no longer writing New York Times column

I still don't understand why these liberal newspapers keep hiring conservative columnists, especially hacks of the Kristol variety. Like they're going to appease the right just because they gave Kristol a perch. The Times could hire 100 Bill Kristols, and Rush Limbaugh would still call them radical left-wing America-haters.

Even worse- the Philadelphia Inquirer has been running columns by John Yoo, who is far beyond a hack- he's actually legitimately a war criminal. I didn't think anyone more loathsome than Rick Santorum would write for the Inquirer op-ed page this year, but I guess I was wrong.
