Bill Kristol Is a Nose Picker

This post, written by Muriel Kane, originally appeared on Raw Story

A video posted on Thursday at the popular YouTube site contrasts clips of Neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol describing the Democratic Party as "paying court" to Daily Kos and pontificating on Iraq with footage of him picking his nose at a recent national security convention.

Kristol's op-ed last month on "Why Bush Will Be a Winner" was widely mocked. However, President Bush made it recommended reading for his entire staff.

"Bill Kristol. 'Respectable' Right-Wing Pundit. Does He Know What He's Talking About? Or Is He Just Picking His Nose?" asks the video.
