Who is Your Favorite Pundit Right Now?
William Kristol ^ | Oct. 7, 2008 | Cinnamon Girl

Posted on 10/07/2008 4:12:18 PM PDT by Cinnamon Girl

Seems like some folks are on the ins, and some folks are on the outs (like Peggy Noonan.) Right now, this week, I think Bill Kristol is the best pundit/commentator going. He has been gently reassuring and generally upbeat. He has not declared Obama the winner or that he intends to vote for Obama, as some surprisingly have. "Can they Catch Up?" from the Weekly Standard is just one example. Another is his recent phone interview with Sarah Palin "The Wright Stuff." He has been a voice of conservative reason, while some of his fellow commentators have been watching too many Obama-kinder videos on You Tube. Kristol's approach has been pragmatic-- advising McCain and Palin on what he thinks they can do to win, and level-headed-- recognizing that other candidates have come back and won after being down in the polls as much as McCain allegedly is.

Yeay, Bill.

Take a moment and just think who has been making the most sense this week. It could be columnist, t.v. pundit, or radio host who has been saying the right things.

Sean Hannity has been the man when it comes to exposing Obama.

Kristol has certainly been in top form lately.

Sticking with FNC, I’ve also appreciated Bill Sammon’s work.

Bill O’Reilly screaming at Barney Frank was my favorite moment of the week. Not very effective, but something I have always wanted to do.

No doubt. Sean has led the excavations into B-HO's past for around 2 years now.

Yes, definitely Mr. Sowell. He is always an intelligent voice of reason.

Good God... Was the picture of Kristol taken in 1990.....?
I think FNC needs a current picture of him.

Rush Limbaugh seems to be the one that is able to cut through all the chatter (or clutter) for me and make several complicated things clearr for me. Plus, when things look or sound bad, he can translate what is really going on.

Sorry, but I’ve all but bailed on the entire lot of tv heads.

Hannity’s style can get annoying at times, but there is no doubt in his loyalty and leading the crowd on all the big issues.

Ingraham is a dissapointment. She had a Georgetown cocktail party interview with her good buddy Nooner yesterday and often speaks of her lib buddy here, lib buddy there.

Stanley Kurtz has been doing great work on 0bama’s history in Chicago and his ties to Ayers. But that’s journalism, not punditry.

RL, Kristol, and Sowell have been in top form lately.

I’ve been disappointeed in Charles Krauthammer.

Hannity for sure. He has been relentless on Obama since early this year and I appreciate and respect him for that.

Sowell...God Bless Him...has missed it badly lately on a couple points.

But he is an American hero...even if 3/4's of the country don't know who he is.

I had to turn off Laura when Peggy came on. Laura is a lot like O’Reilly. Some times it’s hard to tell whose side she’s on.

For a neocon, Bill Kristol has been pretty good lately.

Frankly, whether its economics or politics, Neil Cavuto is the best pundit around. A real conservative.

Ideology aside, I have to give it to Mort Zuckerman.

Anybody can spout opinions, but Zuckerman saw this subprime mortgage crisis coming months, if not years ago, and said so.

Maybe, as a man who made millions in real estate himself, Zuckerman had some agenda of his own, but you can look for a long time before you find another pundit who's as spot on about something that important.

Kristol’s OK. But I would like to see another Rep-leaning journalist take up the charges of Hannity. Keep in mind, many conservatives don’t like Hannity because of the interview style and perception of “ego.” Can’t one of these perceptively-challenged talking heads take up the investigation of Obama’s financial and philosophical associations? I believe that FReepers and EIB-lovers are on-board, but what about reaching the crowds far-too-invested in Dancng With The Stars?
