Conservative columnist and commentator George Will has slammed Sarah Palin saying she should not be trusted with nuclear weapons.
Will was speaking on ABC yesterday and his damning words,coming from the right, may give many people pause.
Here is what he said:
"Two things are infinite. One is the expanding universe, and the other is media attention to Sarah Palin, who is a genius at manipulating it. But she has several political problems. The first of which is there's no undecided vote in this country anymore about Sarah Palin. Sure, second, the threshold question, not usually asked, but its in everyones mind in a presidential election. Should we give this person nuclear weapons? And the answer [in Palin's case], answers itself"
Will and other GOP heavyweights are suddenly running very scared that Palin is a legitimate contender.
She represents their worst nightmare, a grassroots candidate who owes the old bulls in the GOP nothing and who is prepared to say so.
Sarah Palin is actually looking better and better because of Will and others attacking her.
She is showing that she has the real handle on how to shake things up in America, even within her own party.
That is why Will and company are so scared.
LOL! George Will wears his underwear backwards, and always has...
"He stoops to pee"
Monster rearing it’s ugly green head again. Keep talkling Will. Jealousy and stupid A__ remarks will get you no where.
“The first of which is there’s no undecided vote in this country anymore about Sarah Palin. Sure,”
No, this is not a true statement.
“second, the threshold question, not usually asked, but its in everyones mind in a presidential election. Should we give this person nuclear weapons? And the answer [in Palin’s case], answers itself”
Yes, of course we should. Why would you think not?
So the Obamination is???
They said the same dumb thing about Reagan. Reagan was a cowboy who would start WWIII.
George Will is an idiot.
So the Obamination is???
If Sarah played baseball, George Will would like her. /S
I’ve always like George Will. I never thought of him as a “party first” kind of guy. Sorry to see this.
I guess he didn’t blink when the brilliant, Harvard-educated Bill Clinton mislaid (you should pardon the expression) the nuclear codes...
George Will should not be trusted with the title “conservative’.
This really shows that we may have two parties but there is really just one group of elites that pull the strings in both of them. Palin is not one of them and scares the hell out of them.
LOL! True dat....
“Sorry to see this.”
Me too. He’ll be forced to eat crow soon enough, but like Gingrich’s recent remarks, the damage has been done.
Like Terminators being lowered into the molten metal,,, the beltway pundits are thrashing around violently. They know they are no longer relevant,,, and are forced into more and more brash speaking in order to get ANY attention at all.
Having been Gov of a front line state like Alaska, I am sure Sarah knows more about nuclear response than George Shill.
