If Bill Kristol can get a job at Time Magazine, so should a bad golf prognosticator
At the start of every year, I like to make a self-evaluation. I take a hard look at myself as a writer and person and try and work on my faults. I must admit, I have few, but there is one glaring issue I struggle with:
I cannot make a prediction to save my ass.
Seriously, I recently made some predictions for the Bowl Championship Series, and couldn’t have been more wrong, especially in the BCS Championship game, where I picked Ohio State to cruise over Florida. I did pick LSU over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl, but that was sort of a gimme.
Basically, it appears that outside of Notre Dame losses, I am horrifying at predicting things. Which is why I believe Time Magazine should hire me immediately.
Having recently hired William Kristol as a “star columnist,” I believe that Time is making a concerted effort to have terrifyingly incorrect prediction in their magazine. Because Kristol has been wrong just about every time he’s opened his mouth since 1997 or so.
“There’s been a certain amount of pop sociology in America … that the Shia can’t get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq just want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There’s almost no evidence of that at all. Iraq’s always been very secular.”
The United States committed itself to defeating terror around the world. We committed ourselves to reshaping the Middle East, so the region would no longer be a hotbed of terrorism, extremism, anti-Americanism, and weapons of mass destruction. The first two battles of this new era are now over. The battles of Afghanistan and Iraq have been won decisively and honorably.
A war with Iraq “could have terrifically good effects throughout the Middle East.”
I believe that now is the moment for Time Magazine to make their offer. If they want a war expert columnist who has never been anywhere near a war to make war predictions for them, then I believe they are ready for a golf writer who has never been anywhere near the PGA Tour to make golf predictions.
By hiring Bill Kristol, Time Magazine has shown it has no concern, nor interest in being correct. I believe by hiring me to make sports predictions, they can continue on that path.

with Kristol, Kristol was wrong about Iraq long before anyone else.
Kristol was right on that one. Until we took out Sadam Iraq was the most secular country in the Middle East.
Of course, Time Magazine is having serious circulation and financial problems (excuse me while I have a good cry) and may not be in this fold much longer. Not that this will dissuade the propagandists from peddling their leftist propaganda, perish the thought. This set will die with their furry pink boots on.
If they really wanted to breathe some life into their listing rag, they'd hire a literatus such as yours truly. But I suppose they prefer the peace and solitide of oblivion. So be it. I'll be there to water the dandelions on their grave.
You obviously are ignorant of what liberals and neo-cons are. Who originated the term "neo-con"? Why was it originated? Do you have any idea?
By the way, I'm not fond of Kristol, but to say he's a war criminal is the pinnacle of stupidity. You obviously don't even know what a war criminal is.
We are all pounded down about the "meritocracy" of American society, yet we all know that is b.s. from just our regular life. Bill Kristol couldn't do better than the laws of chance tossing a penny against a cement wall, yet ...
Your cowardly attempt at obfuscation has fallen flat, judge judy.
