While it's wrong to imagine that Pinch and Andy would ever regret their decision to hire Kristol, it's also the case that we're basically stuck with him because what frightens our media more than anything is being accused of being liberal and how better to "prove" that than by firing Bill Kristol for being an asshat?

One thing our side does too much is assume that the people who run the New York Times are probably actually somewhat liberal at heart but that they're bending over backwards to pretend otherwise. They're defenders of the establishment as they see it, and given that they're nepotism beneficiaries you can imagine how they see it. Not quite conservative in a Bill Kristol kind of way, but hardly liberal.
