Huff Post Blogger On THIS WEEK And George Will Is A Complete Ass

On "This Week,' with George Stephanopoulos, HuffPo's new political editor, Melinda Henneberger, joined ABC National Security Corresponden

On "This Week,' with George Stephanopoulos, HuffPo's new political editor, Melinda Henneberger, joined ABC National Security Correspondent Jonathan Karl and columnist George Will to discuss the politics of the surge and the very despicable Virgil Goode. Melinda did a fine job representing the blogosphere. She calls Virgil Goode a bigot (OK, that was an easy one) and tabs Gore's movie about Global warming the most important story of the year. (Pick your own.)

However, George Will once again just can't help himself from eating a good helping of zombie brains before he goes on the air. He tries sooo hard to sound sooo much smarter than everybody else that I got bored and almost missed it.

Will: Baghdad is the problem and while we debate what to do in Baghdad, the Shiites are changing the facts on the ground in Baghdad through incremental---not at all stealthy---rather rapid ethnic cleansing. So we may get a monochrome Baghdad out of this which would be ahhh, sad, but perhaps tranquilizing.

Monochrome and Tranquilizing? Is he fraking kidding me. You don't need Will's thesaurus to understand how sick and twisted that statement was. The insurgents are slaughtering hundreds of people (did he expect them to kill a little stealthier?) at a time and he calls the outcome of that display of savagery as having---a calming effect...You know--I wonder if George Will has ever looked in the mirror?

(the clip goes out of sync at the very end. My apologies. I'm trying to take off, but they keep pulling me back in.)...
