Neocon NYT columnist Bill Kristol gets tongue-tied on Fox News Sunday in his zeal to explain some stuff about Hillary and the Dems: "White women are a problem, you know. That's something we all live with!" We assume he was attempting a joke about his wife maybe, but this should serve as a lesson to how humor can often go wrong when you're speaking in soundbites. (Really, though, "White women are the problem" is a perfectly acceptable shorthand behind the scenes for those who discuss politics and, as such, voting blocks for a living. "Blacks are a problem," "We've got to do something about the Jews," etc.) Kristol's mistake was not recognizing that he was actually on TV.
