“”You could probably [have] a reasonably successful foreign policy by just seeing what Bill Kristol is advocating, and doing something else.
William "Bill" Kristol is a triumphalist American neoconservative, and a pundit, "analyst," and "strategist." He is the publisher of the journal of opinion The Weekly Standard. He is also acknowledged as being consistently and remarkably wrong about virtually everything. He loves that we get a little crinkle over our noses when we look at him like he's nuts.
Bill appears with regularity, several times a year, on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, where he displays good humor in response to Stewart's rapier wit.
He was the only significant member of the Republican scribbling class to actively embrace John McCain in 2008, in contrast to others (e.g. David Brooks, David Frum, and even William F. Buckley's only son, for God's sake!) who appeared to retain possession of their faculties.
He is also a noted chickenhawk, even after the Iraq debacle.
During the 2016 election cycle Kristol has been a consistant critic of Donald Trump and called him a "bigot". He proposed putting together a conservative third party to run against Trump but the plan failed due to lack of support.

- On Iraq: "It's not going to happen. This is going to be a two-month war." Or on Sarah Palin: "A spectre is haunting the liberal elites of New York and Washington--the spectre of a young, attractive, unapologetic conservatism, rising out of the American countryside, free of the taint (fair or unfair) of the Bush administration and the recent Republican Congress, able to invigorate a McCain administration and to govern beyond it." And so on.
