Anonymous Liberal — guest-posting for Glenn at Unclaimed Territory — gives us a small sample of the predictions made by TIME Magazine’s new “star” columnist:
On March 17, 2003, on the eve of our invasion of Iraq, Bill Kristol wrote the following:

It will reveal the aspirations of the people of Iraq, and expose the truth about Saddam’s regime.
History and reality are about to weigh in, and we are inclined simply to let them render their verdicts.
Now, you would think that being so incredibly wrong about such an important subject might hurt your career prospects, and that would probably be true in any other field.
But in the world of Washington punditry, being consistently and catastrophically wrong about everything is apparently not an obstacle to advancement.
