On William Kristol

The Times' latest hire, neoconservative extraordinaire William Kristol, is the subject of Katha Pollitt's latest post at The Nation. My favorite line:

Let's have a true leftist on the oped page--someone as far to the left as Kristol is to the right. Noam Chomsky, anyone? (and why does he seem just totally out of bounds but Kristol does not?) Barbara Ehrenreich? Naomi Klein? Susan Faludi? Gary Younge? me? Why do I think those phone calls will not be coming any time soon?
And its hard to believe this piece is almost a year old, but here is Eric Alterman lamenting his hire at Time a year ago.
