Bill Kristol’s Land Of Fantasy Republicans

The world’s most incompetent pundit weighs in on the Occupy Wall Street movement, and he seems a little confused. He uses an anecdote from an article in the New York Times to prove that the protesters are “idiots”, but then he suggests that Republicans need to — well, I’ll let Kristol explain:

A surge is in fact the way to go​—​an intellectual, policy, and political countersurge to both the Obama administration and to Occupy Wall Street. The protesters don’t like crony capitalism? Offer bold proposals to reform it. They don’t like Wall Street? Conservatives should offer policies to benefit Main Street and seek to curb Wall Street abuses. The protesters don’t like the glorification of money? Nor do conservatives, who put God, country, and family before business, and who respect the military, churches, active citizens, and stay-at-home moms more than bond traders (no offense, bond traders!).

And if my sister were a man, she’d be my brother. Ridiculous.

I don’t know what Bill Kristol is smoking, but he shouldn’t bogart it. The dirty hippies camping out on Wall Street might want some.
