Meeting Bill Kristol at the Rally
Meeting people you only know from TV is a surreal experience. As if you suddenly met some character from a book. I found Bill Kristol in a Starbucks, across from the Target Center at around 11:00 AM.
I said "Are you Bill Kristol"?
"Are you here for the Ron Paul convention"?!?!
"I didn't know there was one".
Hard to believe. All up and down the block people were whooping it up, sporting Ron Paul campaign stuff, and police weren't absent.
"I'm here for coffee. And a meeting", he said.
I replied, as he was leaving, "With who? The CFR? Trilateral Commission?".
It was the only thing I could think of. A bystander waiting for his coffee gave me a high-five. There must of been a note of contempt in my voice. I never felt such anger and contempt, but mixed with shame for hating a total stranger who hadn't personally harmed me. He's just lucky I didn't have a pie, I'm afraid I'd have used it and embarrassed us both.
You don't expect to find Anton Levay or one of Sauron's Wraiths strolling around a church picnic; its too macabre and surreal. I suspect he knows he's safer around us, than we are with his profligate, amoral, rapacious, neoconservative war-monger buddies.
