Will Brilliant on Obamacare

No time or need to elaborate much on this, but George Will is brilliant this morning on the Roberts decision. He sees Roberts’s call as a gift to conservatism for two reasons, most importantly that it struck down the mandate under the Interstate Commerce argument and approved it only as a tax.  And, secondly, Mr. […]

The Consequences of Legalization

  George Will predicts in his syndicated column this morning that hard drugs — cocaine, methamphetamine, etc. — will be legalized in America.  This is one of the rare times I think Mr. Will is wrong.  I pray he is anyway. All the arguments for legalizing drugs are sound, but one. Casual users will not remain casual where […]

Election’s Over? Poppycock!

It’s incredible how quickly we jump to conclusions in politics.  I do it all the time, and then prove myself an ass. Just read some back entries of this blog and that will be made clear. The latest meme is that the 2012 election is but a foregone conclusion — that an admittedly strange Republican […]

Quote of the Day, George Will

  [Rick Santorum] is an engagingly happy warrior, except when he is not. Then he is an angry prophet of a dystopian future in which, he has warned, people will be ‘holed up in their homes afraid to go outside at night.’ He has the right forebodings but might have the wrong profession. Presidential candidates do […]

Quote of the Day, George Will

“Time is not Newt Gingrich’s friend because the more time he has the more he talks. And the more he talks the more he says things, as he just here this morning, he said that I would love to be civil, but I’m running against a maniacal liar. Now, that’s pretty strong language. I don’t […]

An Angry Newt Jumps the Shark

Newt Gingrich has jumped the shark. The man who has had a “bold” new “solution” daily since the 1980’s  — in direct contradiction to conservative thought — is now attacking conservative icons like George Will and Charles Krauthammer, and revered conservative publications like National Review, through his super PAC “Winning Our Future.” Their crime is in […]

Quote of the Day, George Will

“Gingrich’s unsurprising descent into sinister radicalism — intimidation of courts — is redundant evidence that he is not merely the least conservative candidate, he is thoroughly anti-conservative. He disdains the central conservative virtue, prudence, and exemplifies progressivism’s defining attribute — impatience with impediments to the political branches’ wielding of untrammeled power. He exalts the will […]

Newt Gingrich, Fool’s Gold

  Conservative icon George Will has been pounding the daylights out of Newt Gingrich in his syndicated column lately. And for good reason. Will has been writing about Mr. Gingrich for years. He knows him. He knows that Mr. Gingrich is a megalomaniac first, an opportunist second, and a conservative third — at best, and […]

Iron Will

When George Will is good, he is exceptionally good.  In his nationally-syndicated column Monday, Will tackles President Obama’s characteristic arrogance and the separation of powers that Mr. Obama, a Constitutional scholar, serially ignores. Here is Will on President Obama’s abundant love of self: “Inordinate self-regard is an occupational hazard of politics and part of the job description of the rhetorical presidency, this incessant tutor. Still, […]
