Bill Kristol Says 'Hogwash' To Any Iraq War Hawk Apology Possibilities

Bill Kristol, fresh from his Morning Joe pummeling by MSNBC pundit John Heilemann link here , spent a good deal of time last week fielding questions about his doubling down on the decision to go into Iraq.

And his call to action that slammed liberal peaceniks as lacking feck. Feck is becoming highly overrated among the BushCo NeoCon Senior Set.

Erin Burnett got a shot at Kristol over at CNN, and he (to our delight) included that prized intellectual conservative descriptive: 'Hogwash!'

She had a provocative Tweet from Senate leader Harry Reid to tweak Kristol's self-elevated nose with.

Have a gander.


"I'm not apologizing for something that I think was not wrong," Kristol opined firmly. "The war to remove Saddam was the right thing and necessary thing to do."

"Apologies would be in order for the neoconservatives who banged the war drums so disastrously, Bill," swiftly came from a neighboring Carl Bernstein, thank you Carl.

"Hogwash!" Kristol bellowed!

The Old White Guys UnCompassionate Conservative Club, headed by Cheney or Kristol or whomever is sick enough to want that chair, is clearly alive and disturbed. And increasingly loud and given to public hissy fits.

On MSNBC's Hardball Monday evening, Chris Matthews gave the Axis of Feeble his own unique shout-out. [Truly, pardon the quiet shouting, but Tweety means so well.]

Bring on 2014!

Paul Bremer Gets Reamed A New A**hole By Erin Burnett

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Burnett Bremer

Sometimes watching someone squirm makes us feel uncomfortable. But when they bring it on themselves, not so much. CNN's Erin Burnett had Iraq Warlord and Bush confident and liar-in-chief Paul Bremer on her show last night. He didn't last long. A bob, a weave and then Burnett landed blow after blow against this fraud masquerading as a man. Without any doubt, he's lucky Obama didn't prosecute him for war crimes and treason against this country. And how does he repay this generosity? He blames Obama for what he (Bremer) left behind.

If you want to see the Thrilla in Vanilla, The Battle of the B's, or The Bremer's Bash, here you go-- front row seats. Better put on some plastic clothing. Erin draws blood early. Watch the cut over Bremer's eye when Erin quickly attacks on this CNN clip:

"People, a lot of people are watching you right now and they're —they're hearing you give your ideas of what to do. And they're saying, 'but aren't you the guy who got us in this mess?'"

"Look, you're the guy who ran Iraq for George W. Bush."

Earlier today Jake Tapper credited the emotion to "exhaustion". You'd think any one of these numbnuts would have a clue that it's just plain old human emotion? Jeebus wept. At least it's not as bad as what Hannity and Limpballs said.

CNN Cancels ‘In the Arena’ With Eliot Spitzer

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Remember when Spitzer was thought to be a leading contender for President in '16? How the mighty have fallen. Nice to see that Burnett left CNBC for something substantial though.

1:42 p.m. | Updated CNN on Wednesday cancelled Eliot Spitzer’s 8 p.m. political talk show, “In The Arena,” after only nine months, and said it would shift Anderson Cooper’s 10 p.m. nightly newscast into the time slot.

The cable news channel also said that Erin Burnett, a new hire from CNBC, would take over the 7 p.m. time slot on weekdays, replacing John King, who will move to 6 p.m. “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” which currently runs from 5 to 7 p.m., will move to 4 to 6 p.m.

The shake-up is intended to stabilize CNN’s television ratings and create better transitions between shows. The only prime time show that is unaffected is “Piers Morgan Tonight,” the 9 p.m. interview show that was introduced six months ago.

Once Mr. Cooper’s newscast shifts to 8 p.m., it will be rebroadcast at 10 p.m., deepening the channel’s dependence on him.
