The Passionate Attachment

America's entanglement with Israel

Kristol’s Nominee for VP

leave a comment »

After a successful “prediction” that his protégée Sarah Palin would be John McCain’s vice-presidential candidate, it’s worth paying attention whenever the editor of the nominally “conservative” Weekly Standard gazes into his Kristol ball. Showing that his unwavering pro-Israeli warmongering counsel can be bipartisan, Bill Kristol has weighed in on the weighty discussion about whether New York governor Andrew Cuomo might replace Joe Biden as Barack Obama’s 2012 running mate:

Is there a better pick than Cuomo? There aren’t a lot of obvious possibilities. But here’s one, who 1) could presumably help in all-important Florida, 2) is young and has a sympathetic personal story, 3) is a proven aggressive and (perhaps) effective attacker of Republicans, which would then allow Obama to appear presidential and a bit above the fray, and 4) could bolster Obama’s support among women against a Republican ticket that could include one, or could mobilize women against a GOP ticket that lacked one. Isn’t Debbie Wasserman Schultz a more logical VP choice than either Joe Biden or Andrew Cuomo?

Happy Independence Day!

Considering the abject subservience of American political representatives like Palin, McCain, Biden, Obama and Wasserman Schultz to Israeli interests, Kristol’s Fourth of July wishes must have been intentionally ironic.
