    I think it is time for Mr. Will to retire. He obviously has advanced dementia brought on by his increasing swing further to the right, devoid of all reason. Some of his latest pieces almost look like they were written by Charles Krautheimer, given all the inaccuracies and Koch-originated statements. I mean, come on. He has actually come out in favor of a policy of unrestricted donations from any one person to as many candidates as he desires, and does not consider that “undue influence”?
    Come to think of it, by going to Fox, he will bring a new level of intelligence to an unintelligent network. Unfortunately, he will be drowned out by the Palins, Hannity’s and company, leaving only Chris Wallace as a reasonable voice.

      This is a good move for ABC.

      At least I will never have to hear or see George Will again!

      I think we are witnessing the power of cold hard cash. They have so many idiots, Murdoch is trying to buy “a new level of intelligence” for his worn out freak show.

    I think he lost any semblance of “reasonableness” when he wrote a column a few years ago about that feisty cracker jack of a Congresswoman Michele Bachman. I couldn’t believe that someone who obviously touts his own intelligence by an overblown vocabulary would succumb to a pretty face, while she mangles US history. For shame , George. You”ll fit right in at Fox.

    Thank goodness, rid of another pseudo-intellectual from network t.v. He is just another nasty, rich neo-con who never served his country. He doesn’t really do anything to advance society, only rails against anything that harms the cause of the wealthy. Fox deserves him.

    Whenever I see the unsmiling George Will on t.v. I am reminded of a remark by Alice Roosevelt Longworth on Calvin Coolidge, “He looks as if he was weaned on a pickle.’

    • Russell Byrd

      That look should fit in well with Sauer-Krautheimer.

    IMO, the last really intelligent and entertaining conservative commentator was the late great William F. Buckley. Like it or not, “Firing Line” was thoughtful and insightful, as well as slyly humorous. That’s why today’s sorry crop of crapulous right wing bloviators could not carry Buckley’s jockstrap. Compared to Buckley, Will is a third-rate poseur.

      As a witness, so true!

  • RobertCHastings

    He was,at one time, one of the most respected conservative talking heads. You know he has lost all credibility when he decides to become a part of the FOX troupe.

      Quite so. But Roger AILES has a big checkbook and money talks.
