I keep reading articles...

...by progressive writers who, when considering whether or not the president should risk going over the fiscal cliff, quote conservative intellectual William Kristol. From a piece of his in the Weekly Standard:

Republicans will fold with lightning speed after we go over the tax cliff on January 1.

Now, while I'll admit that Kristol's argument is persuasive, it's important to remember whom we are talking about: William Kristol is the George Constanza of the Washington establishment. This is the same guy who has been pretty much wrong about everything. I'd take anything Kristol said with a huge grain of salt.
