Since I have no idea why the NYT gives a plush op-ed slot in its paper to Maureen Dowd, I'm not one to try to make sense out of why it now has consented to give pundit space to one William "Bill" Kristol. I also don't have a problem with being exposed to conservative viewpoints.
But here's the thing. Kristol already has a publishing platform at the conservative mag he runs, the Weakly Standard (not to mention his consulting gigs for Faux News). So the dude is hardly in need of more space to enlighten us all as to his spectacular unenlightenedness.
All I am saying, Mr. NYT, is, if you feel the need for another conservative voice, give someone else a chance.
