George Will's savage attack on Sarah Palin shows GOP establishment is desperate
Irish Central ^ | May 30, 2011 | Patrick Roberts

Posted on 05/30/2011 2:53:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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 it’s in everyone’s 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.

“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 it’s in everyone’s 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?

They said the same dumb thing about Reagan. Reagan was a cowboy who would start WWIII.

George Will is an idiot.

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.

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.

Arabs stoop to pee. Explorer Richard Francis Burton, a Brit, nearly outed himself on the way to Mecca, in the 1800s while standing to take a whiz. Obama stoops so he can catch up on news in Cosmo. will stoops because he is a spineless effete intellectual wanna-be.

In his secret, innermost world of fantasies, George Will imagines Obama and himself re-enacting pivotal scenes from the '70s blaxploitation classic, Mandingo.

With Will in the role role of "Blanche."

*******************************************************

Well said and spot on! The more the neo-cons and other pseudo conservatives attack her the more respect she gains among the freedom loving Americans.

After thinking about this, isn’t it amazing that a man who’s claimed to be a Conservative and has made his living by being clever with words has now seen his own words expose him for the fraud he is?

The first of which is there's no undecided vote in this country anymore about Sarah Palin.

This ignores the obvious fact that a lot of people change their minds during the course of election year campaign.

I myself have kind of changed my views of Sarah Palin even over the past month or so.

I am beginning to think that she may, in fact, BE ineluctable.

Looks like George is trying to fit into the Washington look now. Oval, not round glasses, and a long tie, not a bow tie. But he’s still a boob.

Sarah will be elected by the people for the people and not for the old guard GOP.They have as mch to fear from her as the left does because she will do to DC exactly what she did to Alaska.

I love how Sarah drives them bonkers because she doesn’t play by their rules. See the the teaser from Greta’s show:

Get used to it. You're going to see a lot more people who think the party is more important than principles.

The start of the article was somewhat enticing however after that remark I found no reason to go any further.

George Will, who is dumber than a box of rocks,
purports that the lying, undocumented, antiAmerican Kenyan Obama
should have the nuclear football over Gov. Palin.
Well, who knew George Will 'sleeps' with al Qaeda.

You have got that right.

If the GOP nominates an establishment RINO for president, all of the “lesser of two evils” voting republitards will be just as guilty of destroying out republic as George Soros and his all of his useful idiots.

He, Will, was also one of the media Obama invited to dinner early in his administration, no doubt to set the ground rules for their access to the “one”; and, I believe David Brooks was the other “conservative journalist” at the dinner; so, judge Will, if you will(pun intended), by the company he keeps.
