Puntit of the Year Award 2014: Dr. Charles Krauthammer
1. A source of opinion; a critic unable to argue from first principles: a political dodger.
2. An erstwhile learned person capable only of barrelfishing.

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. noted a short while back something along the lines that true Liberals are an extinct species in America. Almost… We’ve spotted one remaining Mondale-esque Liberal, re-heated*, propped-up and trotted before the cameras wearing more pancake than the mixing bowls at Waffle House.
We give you… ( fanfare! )
Dr. Charles Krauthammer, our most worthy Puntit of the Year Award recipient.
Charles Krauthammer in conversation w/ Hugh Hewitt:
Dear reader, stop shaking your head.
To earn this award, all year Dr. Charles has treated us to his labeling our President a poopoo-head. The sheer depth of the man’s analysis is breathtaking.
Fine as it goes, though we have also witnessed Krauthammer’s relentless punting and bunting and apologizing on issues such as Presidential Accountability, Congressional Power of the Purse, Controlled Immigration, Federalism, Second Amendment, Obamacare and Fiscal Responsibility. We have even witnessed Dr. Charles making specious ad hominem attacks against Conservatives, suggesting that they require psychiatric care for disagreeing with the Administration.
There are certainly grounds for the good doctor to sue those who libel and slander him as a “conservative.” Indeed, there is precious little with which to hang such an epithet upon him. He seems eager to “conserve” Carter-era Liberalism, but is it enough?
So to the good Dr., we offer our hearty congratulations on his achievement and wish him all the best (in retirement, please) for 2015. Bravo Charles!
