Just Kidding

Bill Kristol, that right-wing pundit darling of Fox News is a real crack-up, always making jokes. Like this one yesterday regarding the SCHIP program:

First of all, whenever I hear anything described as a heartless assault on our children, I tend to think it’s a good idea. I’m happy that the President’s willing to do something bad for the kids.

I’m sure he’s giving the real Billy Crystal a run for his money.

He goes on to bemoan how explotive the Democrats are for putting a 12-year-old on the radio to deliver the response to President Bush’s weekly address wherein he threatens to veto SCHIP. Of course the Republicans would never exploit children. They would never parade them on stage for something like, oh, say, opposition to stem-cell research. No, they would never do that. Not on your life.
