Our Ignorant Dolt of the Week ... Little Billy Kristol!

By J. Thomas Duffy

Well, once again, it certainly was a tough week on the IDOTW front.

Not, necessarily, due to the absence of some fine candidates, however, with the Bird Day Holiday, a rather slow news week.

Unless, of course, you happened to be vacationing at the the Taj Hotel, in Mumbai (and we may yet to find out, the demands of the terrorists were merely to go back to calling the city Bombay).

Ahhh, so who stepped up to the Idiot Dolt bar ...

Robert Rubin, the Citigroup big cheese, certainly gets an honorable mention.

His "Hey, I didn't do it ... Not my fault" probably, in any other week, could have captured the prize.

But no, today in fact, we had our winner come burstin' through ...

Little Billy Kristol.

Now, I'm sure, this was predictable, the way he waved his poms-poms for The Bush Grindhouse, giving them leather-lunged "Sis-Boom-Bahs", all the way into Baghdad, keeping the creases crisp in his poodle skirt.

What did he do today?

Nothing, other then open The Dubya Legacy Registry (found were finer NeoNitWit merchandise is sold), with a laundry list that, undoubtedly, will get picked up by the other Flying Monkeys in the Right Wing Freak Show.

After slapping the PNAC dildo on the table, for the military, and waving it, menacingly, at the incoming Obama Administration, to not go after the dwarf, finks, phonies and frauds who carried out Darth Vader Cheney's orders to piss-and-shit on The Constitution, Little Billy scribbled this;

Before He Goes ... What President Bush could accomplish in his final days in office

One last thing: Bush should consider pardoning--and should at least be vociferously praising--everyone who served in good faith in the war on terror, but whose deeds may now be susceptible to demagogic or politically inspired prosecution by some seeking to score political points. The lawyers can work out if such general or specific preemptive pardons are possible; it may be that the best Bush can or should do is to warn publicly against any such harassment or prosecution. But the idea is this: The CIA agents who waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and the NSA officials who listened in on phone calls from Pakistan, should not have to worry about legal bills or public defamation. In fact, Bush might want to give some of these public servants the Medal of Freedom at the same time he bestows the honor on Generals Petraeus and Odierno. They deserve it.
Got that?

"...demagogic or politically inspired prosecution by some seeking to score political points ..."

Don't prosecute anyone for breaking our laws, but, rather, give them medals for it ...



By the time this bounces around the echo chamber, via the deadwood at Faux News, Rush, Matt Sludge, Rich Lowry (if he's cleared the starbursts out of his eyes), Prom Dress Boy, the rancid swizzle stick with the eye patch, and all the others, I half expect to see them all, a full bleacher section, on Pennsylvania Avenue, on Inauguration Day, heckling, and harassing President Obama, holding up signs, chanting "No War Crimes! ... No War Crimes! ... Hell No, Let Bush and Cheney Go! ... Hell No, Let Bush and Cheney Go!"

Watch how this will open the flood gates, the revisionism of the Bush Grindhouse officially kicks off, thanks to Little Billy Kristol.

Never mind, for every pat-on-the-back, every hosanna, every bon mot, there's, likely, three different criminal felony charges that could be leveled on Dubya and Darth.

No, Little Billy, we will not pardon anyone, or vociferously praise anyone.

In fact, the only medal-pinning that will take place is for you, attaching The Garlic's "Ignorant Dolt of the Week"to your motherfucking lying, jingoistic, right-wing, war-mongering ass.

Bonus Little Billy Ass-Kissin' Riffs

The Heretik: No ...No, hell no

  • Fuck you, you drunken Irishman! Should we get the info we need, or let a few more 9/11's occur? Who gives a flying fuck if we warterboard a terrorist? Of course we torture -- and we should. Anyone who thinks the Obama administration won't has their head up their ass. I dare say the President-elect has been getting quite the tutorial on the way things must work during this transition period. And don't shit me with the "even McCain is against torture" horseshit. That was pure election year demagoguery.

  • Well, there, Anonymous (is it Mr. or Ms.?), as I wrote, all the Flying Monkeys would rally around Kristol, and you, certainly, are proudly flapping your wings ...

    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid, my friend, it's going to be a rough re-entry for you, into a country that actually will adhere to its' laws ...

    And, don't worry, it will be transparent ... I'm sure all the cable networks will carry the War Crime trials from The Hague, live ...
