Memo to George Will: The House seats in Michigan (as in every state with more than one House member) have been redistricted four times since Gerry Ford was a congressman, so a guy of your intellect should have figured out that Amash doesn't occupy "the same seat" that Ford once did. And if you want to call someone "the embodiment of vanilla Republicanism," just look in the mirror at yourself! Maybe you've lost some of your vaunted brain power by hanging out with too many MSM lefties in Washington.
Just look at the other side of the state where the Dingell family has held the throne since 1933 and that’s just a father and son.
Dingell senior changed the family name from Dzieglewicz to run for the seat with the catchy slogan of “Ring with Dingell”
