   The firing of conservative analyst Bill Kristol from the This Week
Sunday show makes perfect sense in terms of quotas and affirmative
action.  With three liberals and two conservatives, the 60%
underepresents the liberal contingent, of which 94% admitted voting for
Clinton over Dole.  With Kristol being ditched, the liberals are now up
to 75%.

   That is still below what it should be.  Next, they'll replace George
Will by a moderate.  That will bring the ratio up to 3 1/2 to 1/2 or
87.5%.    If they add Mike McCurry as a regular, that would then bring
it to 4 1/2 to 1/2 or 90%.  See, they'll get that quota.
