The New York Times announced Saturday that William Kristol, “one of the nation’s leading conservative writers and a vigorous supporter of the Iraq war, will become an Op-Ed page columnist for The New York Times.”  The publication acknowledges that Kristol has been a “fierce critic” of The Times.

Interesting twist.  While on the other end of the fence, Kristol has a sharp intellect, and I look forward to reading him.

Will he be sharing an office with Maureen Dowd?
