It looks like the New York Times won’t have Bill Kristol to kick around anymore. From today’s Kristol column:
This is William Kristol’s last column.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t have to get Ben Stein to help him out with his interest-only mortgage.
Update: From Michael Calderone (bold mine):
It remains to be seen if Rosenthal fills the spot with a conservative or libertarian voice. But some of the writers he’s spoken favorably of include the National Review’s Byron York and The Atlantic’s Megan McArdle.
York may be worse than Kristol, if only because he’s so proud of his hair. McArdle is annoying and often glibertarian, but probably about as good as it’s going to get for the Times conservative position.
