Irving Kristol (1920-2009)

Father of you-know-who.

Kristol- Irving-HR


Having a genocidal psychopath like that for a kid would kill anyone. I’m sure Irving prefers being in hell.

sounds like the fruit didnt fall far from the tree.

…the notion that there should be one set of truths available to everyone is a modern democratic fallacy.

Sure, maybe (just maybe) the quote is taken out of context but, you know – good riddance.

Billy Crystal’s dad is dead? And is he gonna do an HBO special on it?

Yup, there is a lesson in this; don’t be such an asshole that people rejoice at your death.

You know, where the asshats have it wrong is in thinking that they were able to consciously will themselves into being the worlds actors, who create reality, while others simply chronical their deeds.

Because it is true that “society,” as a group (and most often in hindsight), does agree on what is “reality,” and thus creates “reality.”

But they were wrong in thinking that their elitinesses could control this larger societal perception process. Some leaders can affect the process and skew “reality” one way or another, but noone is ever in complete control of this phenomenon.

Or to put it more simply, you can fool all of the people some of the time, like after a terror attack, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, like the Birthers and Palintards, but noone, noone can fool all of the people all of the time.

@Prommie: I think the neocon cabal knew they could take the opportunity to fool enough of the people long enough to loot the treasury good and deep. I hope someone snatches Kristol’s body from the undertaker and ties it to the back of a bus to be dragged to bits. Send this piece of shit to hell in chunks to use in the barbeque.

List of accomplishments:

Is he the one (or is it his son) who just wrote the book about how Jews should be Republicans?

TJ: Meanwhile, my mayor and wanna-be California Governor, just live tweeted the birth of his campaign prop daughter. I’m grateful Dodger isn’t around right now to give me shit about it, I certainly can’t defend that.

@SanFranLefty: Twisted. The one thing that should really belong only to a family and he spits it out on the Web.

When I was young and un-cynical I wrote Irving an eleven-page letter describing all his crimes and asking him to account for them. I think it was 1986 or such. That was when the War was mostly in Central Amrika. He actually wrote back. I will remember him as an asshat that was willing to take on his detractors, somewhat.

His son, on the other hand…well, I hope he’s crying like Glenn Beck. Pussy.

(Not to disrespect the power of pussy, just to call out that douchebag, who I now nominate as the Douchebag of the Century)

@Pedonator: I mean, that was a real letter, written on paper and delivered via US Postal Service. And his reply was the same.

And at the time, I lived in Alaska: home of batshit-crazy governors and hippy-chicks dancing and trance-ing to the sounds of Talkeetna bluegrass virtuosos. Good times.

@The Nabisco Quiver are Go!: Let’s run the context:

“There are different kinds of truths for different kinds of people. There are truths appropriate for children; truths that are appropriate for students; truths that are appropriate for educated adults; and truths that are appropriate for highly educated adults, and the notion that there should be one set of truths available to everyone is a modern democratic fallacy. It doesn’t work.”

I think if you substitute “lies”, it makes sense. Then again, we’ve learned that neocons are much more relativistic than they let on.
