Bill Kristol should shut up:
Regarding the Cheney / Huffpo comments flap, Bill Kristol writes
Huffington and Puffington
Arianna disapproves of those of us who called attention to the comments posted on her site Tuesday morning lamenting the failure of a suicide bombing in Afghanistan Tuesday to kill Vice President Cheney. These commenters "make up a very, very small unrepresentative portion of our readers," she now assures us.
How does she know? If the HuffPost commenters are unrepresentative of HuffPost readers, how does she divine the views of her readers?
Enlighten us, Arianna. Poll your readers. Ask them: Are they pleased that the attempt against Vice President Cheney failed? Are they grateful that he is alive and well? Do you hope the U.S. prevails in Afghanistan? In Iraq?
And if the poll turns out the way you hope, perhaps you should arrange to moderate the commenters so they don't convey the impression that your readers are--as you put it--"unhinged" and "fringe."

This, from Kristol, whose website does not allow for comments!
I find nothing to be ashamed about in lamenting that Cheney did not get what he imo deserved. It is very unlikely that he will have to pay for his crimes ever (at least in the USA). Imo he is guilty of all 4 Nuremberg indictments (conspiracy to start a war of aggression, crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity).
Will Billy Kristol be MCing the "NEOCON OSCARS" on the FAUX Network?
Would anyone even bother to read HuffPost if the comments were disabled?
