George Will On The Neocons

George Will today smacks around the Weekly Standard, a bastion of neocons, today in the Washington Post. Will is actual right for once, just as you can't dig your way out of a hole with a shovel, we can't war our way out of this war with another war. Well, not unless we want to pay eight to ten dollars a gallon for gasoline. This was by far my favorite paragraph of the column. From the Post:

Neoconservatives have much to learn, even from Buddy Bell, manager of the Kansas City Royals. After his team lost its 10th consecutive game in April, Bell said, "I never say it can't get worse." In their next game, the Royals extended their losing streak to 11 and in May lost 13 in a row.

Ouch, I believe the neocon agenda was just compared to the Kansas City Royals who at the time of this writing are a mere 30 games out of first place. I wonder if Bill Kristol has been sneaking up on his locker to see if it has been red tagged. Probably not, I doubt if he understands that two or three errors a game isn't out of line. After all, in Kistol's mind all of his errors have in fact been spectacular plays in which the public doesn't understand that to get the runner out at first you have to throw the ball into the stands on the third base line.

There might be a metaphor in there, but in case there isn't, we should bomb Iran. Right Bill?

Apologies to anyone in KC that had to be reminded that you do indeed have a baseball team.
