Quote For The Day II

"I think it is an open question whether the Times itself should be prosecuted for this totally gratuitous revealing of an ongoing secret classified program that is part of the war on terror," - Bill Kristol, July 7, 2006. Matt sighs. Isaac thinks he's better in a partisan publication like the Weekly Standard:

The beauty of Kristol's Weekly Standard editorials is that his thuggish side is allowed to shine; at Time it was constricted.

Steve Benen:

This is an embarrassment from which the paper of record will not soon recover.

That strikes me as too excitable. It's just a missed opportunity. I guess they did have Tierney for a while. But balancing Kristol with a paleocon or libertarian would be a good idea. Why not stir the pot and add Brookhiser or Ponnuru or Chapman once a week? Or a younger blogger like Larison or Douthat or Balko?
