It’s beginning to feel a lot like listicle time:

10. Michael Kelly
9. David Broder
8. Jim Hoagland
7. Robert Novak
6. Michael Gerson
5. Fred Hiatt
4. Robert Samuelson
3. George Will
2. Robert Kagan
1. Charles Krauthammer

I want to keep the explication to a minimum, but this is an award for the aggregate badness of one’s Washington Post columns, not a holistic judgment of the character of any individual who happens to have written Post columns. Ergo, Bill Kristol gets off the hook on the grounds that relatively few of his bad deeds over the past ten years actually took the form of Post columns.
