"McCain campaign attacks Bill Kristol: ‘He’s bought into the Obama campaign’s party line.’"

Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Bill Kristol said John McCain’s campaign has really become “a pathetic campaign.” In his New York Times op-ed this morning, Kristol went further, suggesting that McCain should “fire his campaign” and “start over.” Asked to respond to Kristol’s criticisms, McCain campaign spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer said on Fox News:

Well, you know Bill is entitled to his perspective. And I used to work for Bill. And I can tell you personally sometimes he’s brilliant and sometimes he’s not. And this is one where it’s the latter category. You know, I think unfortunately he has bought into the Obama campaign’s party line.

Watch it:


Update

The Huffington Post notes that McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds also hit Kristol. “I know Bill Kristol is an intelligent guy, I just don’t think what he had to say was very intelligent,” he said.
