George Will: "They want to bomb Iran, but they're afraid of Rush Limbaugh."


Has anyone ever more succinctly summed up the current state of the Republican Party than the conservative George Will did today?



"Boehner comes out and says Rush’s language was inappropriate. Using the salad fork for your entrée, that’s inappropriate. Not this stuff. And it was depressing because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh. They want to bomb Iran, but they’re afraid of Rush Limbaugh.”

- - - - - - George Will, March 4, 2012, on ABC's "This Week"










Really. It's such a succinct summation, it sounds like a bumper sticker!









How about a competition?

Post your suggestions!

2. I've seen Will "play the liberal."

Once, as part of a panel, interviewing a right wing pol (I forget who,) Will realized their was no one to take the left side (Brinkley and Donaldson on vacation(?) and Cokie who knows where.) So Will assumed the persona of liberal inquisitor, and did a great job. I was very impressed.

So it's not that he doesn't have a brain.

3. Should a major theme of 2012 be that a party afraid of Rush Limbaugh is UNFIT TO LEAD America?

5. Of course they're not afraid to bomb Iran

They can get some poor kid to go do the dirtywork for them and their soft hands are never stressed or strained. Typical right-winger fare.

They have to take Limpballs on right here, head to head. That entails they take some risk to their poor (political) hides. Cowards aren't about to do that. Again, typical right-wing fare.
