Kristol’s Long Game

"Kristol’s Long Game"

Okay, I think I’ve figured out what game Bill Kristol’s playing by talking up Mike Huckabee. The theory, I think, is that the current GOP contest features a Romney versus McCain matchup and a Romney versus Huckabee matchup. If it ever becomes a McCain-Huckabee head-to-head, then McCain wins. Hence, talking up Huckabee helps McCain, the candidate Kristol wants to help.

But, seriously New York Times, this is the problem with taking Kristol on as a columnist. You need to read his work with a decoder ring to try to figure out what’s happening.
