Disclosure: This columnist’s wife, Mari Will, works for Scott Walker”

The top intellectual media voices of the Republican establishment continue to caterwaul about the gall of Donald Trump for crashing their party. They have spent weeks throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Trump only to see him walk through the fire as though he were Godzilla. It is getting to where an establishment lickspittle must be starting to wonder whether even that massive chemical explosion in the Chinese port city of Tianjin could have damaged the Donald. While the hue and cry against the outsider Trump continues to build, it is longtime Washington Post columnist George Will who is now resorting to some nutty historical revisionism to demand that the GOP boot the billionaire out before he actually manages to – GASP – win the nomination.

Will conjures up the heady days of the Cold War (an obsession with the WAPO laptop warriors) by invoking how William F. Buckley cast out the ultra-conservative John Birch Society. His latest screed which is entitled “Donald Trump is a Counterfeit Republican” calls for the excommunication of the vile usurper: [continued]

I have the highest regard for George Will's abilities and integrity.  But, after 34 years of being cloistered with  the likes of George Stephanopoulos and  Sam Donaldson on television,  and with the liberal monks at the Washington Post  for 41 years, he's learned the "art" of accommodation. Too well, to suit my taste (endorsing assisted suicide?  Egad). But, you know what?  He's right. Donald Trump is a counterfeit Republican, which is exactly why  so many find him attractive, and so uniquely qualified to become the next U.S. President. 

Aside:  I do like Scott Walker, but the GOP 'stablisnment will never allow him the nomination.

Yeah, I used to tape every 'This Week' episode to see the liberals squirm when George pontificated. I actually started to think he had a 'First Question' rule written into his contract, as he usually went first among the commentators. He was effective. Now,...not so much.

"...Buckley’s legacy is being betrayed by invertebrate conservatives..."

The delicious irony is that Will is pointing a fat, shit-stained finger at the RNC and all their lapdog republicans in Congress. He is just too arrogant to realize it. -- Skyhawker Doug

Nice touch on the hair as Professor Irwin Cory states, "“Donald Trump is a Counterfeit Republican” ... vile usurper. What does he call McConnell and Boehner those handmaidens of Obama? As is another Bush (Jeb).

Decades ago, (Probably in the 92 campaign season) I bought a book of
Will's essays and Op-Eds. He made the argument in favor of a law
that would ban flag burning by arguing that American's had a
"collective" right not to be offended by the actions of a flag

I expected that kind of crap from a liberal, but certainly not
George Will. There are times when he is not the conservative
he seems to be!

George Will has metamorphasized into a Twit. I guess that is due to drinking the water and breathing the air of DC for so long. I knew this when I read that he did not fully support the right to keep and bear arms.

Maybe Ann Coulter needs to beat the $h!+ out of him.
