Bill Kristol and war

Kristol’s column this morning is typically vapid.  In a nutshell, “Obama is prosaic and unexciting and mechanical and all domesticy and IRAN! NUKES! DANGER!”

Kristol has a war fetish.  It’s a pathological aspect of his character.  But what he’s up to here has another component…as Obama’s domestic competence is rather clear and respectable (and his planned domestic policy moves popular) why not try to suggest that his international affairs bona fides are weak and womanly, like Dems always are.

Throw it against the wall, see if it sticks.  When not in power, I have no compass heading other than to get back into power.  I’m the real philosopher-king, not Obama.  And certainly not the people!  Ugh!

Update: Golly goodness.  Murdoch’s New York Post has an oddly similar opinion piece this morning:

By comparison, the Carter administration is starting to look like a model of manly strength, courage and patriotism.
