The menorah of minorities

The Huffington Post has learned that, in a move bound to create controversy, the New York Times is set to announce that Bill Kristol will become a weekly columnist in 2008.

This is EXACTLY what the New York Times needs, a second Jewish faux conservative to provide balance to the Jewish liberal, the other Jewish liberal, the other other Jewish liberal, the black liberal and the woman liberal. Which makes me wonder, where’s the Hispanic liberal and the gay liberal needed to complete the set? Instead of a credibility-challenged neocon, you’d think they could have found a gay Judeo-Hispanic liberal woman and killed five birds with one hire.
