Bill Kristol used his space in the NYT’s op-ed page this morning to praise Hillary Clinton and carry her water over Obama’s decision not to debate her before North Carolina and Indiana. What’s funny about the column is that he sets out to say nice things about Clinton but never really gets around to it.

I normally don’t claim to speak for other members of the vast right-wing conspiracy. After all, we’re each nefarious in our own, individual way. Indeed, we often disagree with one another.

But I do think I can speak for most of my fellow right-wingers when I say this: We once looked forward with unambivalent glee to the fall of the house of Clinton. Many of us still do. But we also see the liberal media failing to give Hillary Clinton the respect she deserves. So, since we conservatives believe in giving credit where credit is due, it falls to us to praise Hillary.

But what does he praise? He praises her for winning the contests that she has won. And he suggests that at least some of the people that voted for her in Pennsylvania actually like her and voted for her, rather than against Obama. High praise, indeed.

Why are members of the Vase Right Wing Conspiracy so nice to the Clintons these days? Rupert Murdoch holds a fundraiser for her. Richard Mellon Scaife has lunch with Bill and endorses Hillary. Sean Hannity spends all day telling his listeners falsehoods about William Ayers and his connections to Barack Obama. Rush Limbaugh is trying to get all his listeners to re-register as Democrats and vote for Hillary Clinton. And Bill Kristol sticks up for her in the New York Times.

I’m just saying…
