The awful, rancid, racist, misogynist bile that is George Will

His column in today's Washington Post starts like this:

"Today’s subject is potentially the most consequential mistake of Joe Biden’s irresponsibly prolonged public life. She, the mistake, will not, however, be mentioned again:"

What follows is some of the most atrocious writing of his too-long career. All in an attack on Vice President Harris.

4. Despise him. Heard him speak years ago at a corporate summit. I left. I'm sure it was noticed by the brass. I survived.

He is awful, and facing his increasing weakness and irrelevance and impotence with characteristic charm. Time to screw down the lid.

Almost the entire thing is an attack on Henry Wallace.

10. Will is comparing the two ...

denigrating both as he does, even going as far as to allude that Harris is some kind of Stalinist in a race where the real Russian asset is on the other side. This column is nothing but character assassination of a titanic scale.

who had long hair and a beard. The other students assumed he was liberal. But, I had heard him make some remarks that made me think he was conservative...he assigned a George Will column for the test. I picked it apart and got a B+-he was one of those asses that refused to give A's. I hate George Will but I attacked the argument and not him- I knew the rules. But other students just trashed the Will which is what the professor wanted, he failed a fair number of these students for being illogical in their hatred of Will and using an Ad hominem argument. That professor was a complete jerk and moved on fairly quickly. No one liked him.

The sweaty turd forgot to tell ABC News and all the viewers that he was working for Ronald Reagan while working for ABC News.

Among the important things he failed to report was how Team R managed to illegally get a hold of Carter's debate briefing book and his role in all that.

George Will should have been kicked out of Journalism Inc. long ago.
