What Fresh Hell Is This?

June 27, 2016

Well, George WIll Is Gone.

In case you missed it:
Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.

“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.

Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.

“This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event.
I have to admit I agree with Will about 0.00% of the time.  MAYBEE 0.05%.

He's dangerously wrong on climate science and a few years ago he got some well-deserved bruises regarding campus sexual assault.

His writing on baseball, however, is in a separate brilliant category.

But this time, about politics, he's right.  He's right about the Cheeto-faced ferret wearing shitgibbon (a.k.a "Donald J. Trump") when he wrote this week:
Yes, as Republicans should remember when their convention opens in less than a month, on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s disparagement of John McCain as unheroic because he was “captured.” McCain was captured (with a broken leg and two broken arms) when North Vietnamese shot down his plane. He chose extra years of torture, refusing to leave when his torturers wanted to release him because he was an admiral’s son.

Trump says, however, that he, too, has been “very brave” by ignoring the danger of venereal disease during his sexual adventures: “It is a dangerous world out there — it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam, I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” He was serious; irony is not in this narcissist’s repertoire. And there is a reason Britain’s staid Economist magazine refers to Trump’s “look of a rouĂ© gone to seed.”
And so on.

Sometimes Bill Buckley is given respect by Democrats and liberals because he purged the Birchers from the GOP in the early 1960s. The thing is, Buckley didn't disagree much with the Birchers' agenda, he merely found them to be low-class and vulgar.

Today's GOP, in all it's insanity, was built with the help of George Fwill. It's just that he, like Buckley, doesn't like the low-class and vulgar displays being put on by the proles.

What I'm saying is, Will should not get a speck of credit or respect for his decision.
