Quote of the day

Bill Kristol, humanitarian.

I normally don't claim to speak for other members of the vast right-wing conspiracy. After all, we’re each nefarious in our own, individual way. Indeed, we often disagree with one another.

But I do think I can speak for most of my fellow right-wingers when I say this: We once looked forward with unambivalent glee to the fall of the house of Clinton. Many of us still do. But we also see the liberal media failing to give Hillary Clinton the respect she deserves. So, since we conservatives believe in giving credit where credit is due, it falls to us to praise Hillary.

That's Bill Kristol, in his latest column for the New York Times. You didn't realize that Kristol's a steadfast, selfless champion of the downtrodden? Shame on you.
