And the Kick Line Continues…George Will is a Glutton for Punishment edition.
Perhaps the most apposite of the judgments recorded there in describing George Will’s decision to defend the indefensible in his recent error-and-deceit filled fantasy of a column about climate change is this one:
“Since my last report, he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.”
Though on reflection, this one captures the essence of the problem equally well:
“He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction.”
And then there’s this, probably my all-purpose favorite:
“I would not breed from this officer.”
And then…oh hell, most of them fit. Go read them.
I’ll have a whack at Will’s flailing when it actually hits print. In the meantime, start thinking up yet more aphorisms appropriate to the subject at hand.
