1. This little shit should be serving jail time
for stealing Carter's debate briefing book.

Two standards -- one for the GOPigs and one for the Dems.

He's a wimpy creep -- typical misogynist.

3. No kidding.
It's a textbook example of an essay filled with misogynistic code words.

15. The story sounds so, uh, contemporary:

... Will looked at the Carter briefing materials and then helped coach Reagan for a crucial debate with Carter. Promptly after the debate, Will went on "Nightline" to praise Reagan for a "thoroughbred performance." Viewers had no way to know of Will's involvement in prepping Reagan for the debate ...

4. Like most guys who could never get laid, Will hates women
Who wants to take bets that this bespectacled, bow tie wearing wuss never had a date in high school or college?

18. Actually, for a while I thought that he was a dirty old man
I remember when ABC reported on the 1992 elections at the end Peter Jennings commented about Will's new baby. I don't know how old he is but I was certain, then, that he was no blushing groom.

I suspect that he, too, dumped his first wife for a trophy model.

5. NPR's Science Friday
had an hour on this today witha panel of women scientists including Nancy Hopkins.
http://www.sciencefriday.com/pages/2005/Jan/hour1_01280...
The conclusion is that women are dominated by men in the field of science because of environmental factors, not biological.

Women are simply not reared to be scientifically curious as much as men are because it is still a man's world. Period. It is totally cultural and environmental.

George Will is an ass and a half.

6. When I was in grade school, boys and girls were equally interested in
science, but by high school, the message had gotten out that being interested in science was not cool for girls.

However, a few brave girls bucked the stereotypes, and in 1967, my high school sent its first female graduate to the University of Minnesota's Institute of Technology--along with about ten male graduates.

7. Well, you know what his now ex-wife did to him, don't you?
When she found out he was cheating on her with another woman, she threw his clothes on the front lawn of their house for all to see. I love it.

No wonder he has this tic when it comes to women.

8. And, p.s.
I forgot to add that she put a sign on his stuff saying "Take it somewhere else, buster."

Maybe we should respond to his article on hysterical women with that phrase. What a nice way to remind him of his public humiliation!

16. Yes, Will did a classic "Ditch the old wife in favor of a younger woman."
Unfortunately for him, the old wife found out and ditched him before he could ditch her. So he was the ditchee. Heh.

20. Link.
http://archive.salon.com/news/1998/02/12newsa.html

If Dowd's fears are correct, then the "oppo research" department at the White House has probably already unearthed the January 1987 issue of Washingtonian magazine that described Will's "off again, on again" relationship with his then-wife, Madeleine. At the time, there was considerable gossip in media circles about the matter. A subsequent issue of Washingtonian reported that a pile of Will's belongings appeared one day in front of his Chevy Chase, Md., home with a sign on top that read, "Take it somewhere else, buster."

9. George Will being such a fine example of the superiority of menfolk!
Of course I disagree with him .... always do .... but I also can't take him seriously. Especially on the subject of women, he's just a big bundle of (non-endearing) neuroses, wrapped up in a button-down shirt.

12. "Hysterical" is still being used as a word?
god forbid women speak up and tell their opinion about the new "eveolutionary biology" movement that says we should all be cave men and women.

14. I think there is a natural difference
that is probably caused by higher ADD and Autism rates in men. If there are any difference between the average man's aptitude and an average woman's aptitude, I'm not quite sure.

19. If Wills thinks Summers did no wrong, then
why did Summers apologize several times? Will is an ass.

What else is new today?
