The Man in the Arena

Bill Kristol called the McCain campaign “pathetic” and on Monday suggested that McCain fire his entire campaign staff. Last night, campaign manager Rick Davis was asked about that on Fox News: 

Davis: “it’s a good thing Bill Kristol has never run a political campaign because he’d probably have to fire himself at least two or three times.”

Kristol has run exactly one political campaign, Alan Keyes’ 1988 unsuccessful Senate bid in Maryland. Kristol’s only direct involvement with a winning campaign was when he served as deputy issues director for Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s 1976 Senate campaign in New York.

While sharing Kristol’s view that the McCain campaign has been hapless since mid-September, I also see Davis’ point of view: Kristol is essentially trying to run the campaign from the op-ed page of the New York Times.
