Bill Kristol ladies and gentlemen, in his third New York Times column does a discount version of Peggy Noonan (in fact Nooners should consider a plagiarism suit):
Mitt Romney is the very model of a modern venture capitalist. Mike Huckabee is the very model of a modern evangelical. Rudy Giuliani is the very model of a modern can-do executive. They are impressive modern men all. But John McCain is a not-so-modern type. One might call him a neo-Victorian — rigid, self-righteous and moralizing, but (or rather and) manly, courageous and principled.
Maybe a dose of this type of neo-Victorianism is what the 21st century needs.
I'm confident that only the thought of bombing brown people into gravy gives Bill Kristol a stiffy -- so obviously his "Straight Talkin' Boner" leans right with McCain.
For what really is more "Victorian" than repressed sexuality coupled with repressing the "Coolies"?
It must be luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv.

I hope Petraeus isn't jealous.
