stephen-colbert.jpgThe guessing game continues as to who will replace Bill Kristol on the Times op-d page. NYMag.com thinks Stephen Colbert would be a great idea: “If the paper is smart, it’ll capitulate to its destiny and hire the ultimate nonconservative conservative, Stephen Colbert.” We’re not holding our breaths on that one, though Colbert is more appealing than, say, Bono.

Meanwhile it looks like National Review‘s Byron York, whose name had been bandied around as a possible replacement, is out of the running. FishbowlDC reports that York has accepted a position as chief political correspondent at the Washington Examiner where he will pen a twice-weekly column.
