The Kristol Award

Imagine how Bill Kristol could have mocked me, if I had wrote the lyrics to a song back in 2007 about how wrong he is all the time and then he turned out to be right about everything. That song would be sitting there looking real dumb, out of touch and outdated before it was ever heard.

But thankfully, this is Bill Kristol we are talking about here. He never lets you down. You can mock his inaccuracy all day and night, year after year, and never have to worry about him suddenly turning around and getting something right. In that spirit, the Booze Cabinet offers congrats to the celebrated Mr. K for winning Andrew Sullivan’s Von Hoffman Award for “for stunningly wrong political, social and cultural predictions.” Hats off. He earned it!

But really, shouldn’t that award be named for him by now?
