Yes, I agree, someone should put a thesaurus in a blender with a quart of milk of magnesia and force the results down Will's throat.

It's interesting. When this campaign started my thoughts were that a Romney presidency wouldn't be so bad, that he was just pandering to the right to win the nomination and that once he was in the White House he would act in the country's best interests. Now I hate the man with a passion. He has no moral core, he's not interested in what's best for the country, he's only interested in winning and if that means making political hay off of tragedy, be it in Benghazi or Brooklyn, so be it. Romney's primary reason for running is to make the world safe for his kids' trust funds. His response to Sandy--staged photo ops and making sure the rolls of toilet paper he donates go to swing states only--is truly despicable. He has no milk of human kindness. He is a schmuck. fark him and the dressage horse he came in on.

You'll have to excuse the Republicans' confusion: they aren't used to seeing a President competently respond to a natural disaster.

Quasar: I'm cynical enough to say that I think Obama sees some political opportunity in this, but he's also doing the right thing. I'll also admit that Romney as challenger is in a tougher spot regarding how to react to Sandy, though he's been fairly embarrassing thus far with his shameless photo ops and continued campaigning.

But all the people with their "WHY IS OBAMA DOING SO MUCH SO FAST AND EFFICIENTLY THIS IS CLEARLY PANDERING" would be first to biatch at any slight delay.

It's not just that, it's Romney's complete refusal to even discuss how he'd respond to a similar disaster.

Diogenes: Hey, now. That's Newt's job.

Newt's what a stupid person thinks a smart person sounds like. He's The Big Bang Theory of right wing politics.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Hahahaaaaaaa, Obama is TOAST.

Wow. It's such a compelling argument - rife with subtle insight and mastery of fact - I don't know how one could argue against it.

Poor old George. he wanted to be the Next William F. Buckley. But the Right doesn't want any more Buckleys. it wants Limbaughs and Savages and Becks. He's ended up as a whiny, irrelevant right wing Andy Rooney. And nobody cares.

,,,he seems to smolder with resentment that he must actually ask for a second term.

Is "Will" short for "Willful ignorance" or something?

Bloody William: I realize Will made it his own style and it's sort of his signature, but Jesus fark is his writing pretentious claptrap. We're talking Dennis Miller with a thesaurus.

Quoted for truth.

Hey, leave the little guy out of this.

But, yes, I agree - that writing was pretentious as hell.

Pocket Ninja: To be fair, George Will and Charles Krauthammer do share a single brain over there at the Post. I think this is Charles' week with it.

No it's the week they keep it on the shelf.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: NutWrench: Ah, George Will. The thinking man's whargarble.

I prefer "the ignorant man's intellectual".

Hey, now. That's Newt's job.

And screw George Will. He's been all over the map with regard to Romney. His political thoughts these days are less "theory" and more "musing." He's become the Dick Cavett of conservative political thought.
