"He's an idiot -- he wrote that we should be grateful to George Bush because he won the Iraq war. We! Won! The! War!"
On Sunday afternoon . . . Bill Kristol -- in an email exchange with Big Hollywood -- agreed to debate Matt Damon on his Hollywood home turf . . .
Hey, Andrew, how about doing it at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara? I'm sure YAF would be up for it, and they could bus in lots of College Republican girls who would certainly love to see that sexy hunk Bill Kristol debate what's-his-name. (Chicks dig neocons. Go figure.)
Breitbart throws some chum in the shark pool by reminding us that what's-his-name dissed Sarah Palin:
It's like a really bad Disney movie, 'The Hockey Mom.' Oh, I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she's president. She's facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It's absurd."But the weenie won't accept the debate invitation. When it comes to forensic combat, he's a chickenhawk.
(Thanks to Smitty for the tip!)
Who has more to lose? It's received wisdom on the left that Kristol's the ne plus ultra of conservative idiocy, as today's theatrical nutroots overreaction to his leaving the NYT demonstrates. If Damon -- whose every interview on politics mentions his Harvard pedigree for extra gravitas -- goes toe to toe with him and loses, his lefty intellectual cred will be smashed.
He's a chickenhawk, I tell you!
