Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

George Effing Will

George Effing Will and his bow tie have been a fixture of DC punditry for decades.  He - or more likely his bow tie - has been the voice of "Mainstream Conservatism" on countless panel shows and gabfests.

In the past few months he has become a climate change denier and insinuated that being raped confers some sort of special status on the victims.  This has gotten him dropped from one paper already.

I would, however, argue that denying global warming and downplaying the trauma of rape simply means that George Will remains the voice of "Mainstream Conservatism" in 2014.
