I begrudgingly admit, on occasion, that I find Bill Kristol to be a very intelligent man. I almost always think he's wrong and sometimes, as was the case with the run-up to the Iraq war, he's even deadly wrong. It is worth noting his consistency. Kristol has chimed in on Olbermann's behalf. He, too, finds the suspension unwarranted. Going further, he argues it is unseemly so closely following the election.

"First, he donated money to candidates he liked. He didn't take money, or favors, in a way that influenced his reporting. Second, he's not a reporter. It's an opinion show. If Olbermann wants to put his money where his mouth is, more power to him. Perhaps Olbermann violated NBC News "policy and standards." But NBC doesn't have real news standards for MSNBC -- otherwise the channel wouldn't exist. It's a little strange to get all high and mighty now. But there's now a Republican House, and perhaps GE is trying to curry favor by dumping Olbermann?" (italics his)
