George Will bemoans the end of the age of grace in DC
George Will is not loving him some Jim Webb.
That was certainly swift. Washington has a way of quickly acculturating people, especially those who are most susceptible to derangement by the derivative dignity of office. But Jim Webb, Democratic senator-elect from Virginia, has become a pompous poseur and an abuser of the English language before actually becoming a senator.Abuser of the English language? As opposed to our overly articulate president? I thought Webb expressed himself pretty clearly but when it comes to pompous poseurs, I suppose Will should know. Those Georgie boys gotta stick together.
Meanwhile, I think Mr. Will must be considering changing his occupation from pundit to stand up comedian with this line.
Based on Webb's behavior before being sworn in, one shudders to think what he will be like after that. He already has become what Washington did not need another of, a subtraction from the city's civility and clear speaking.The city's civility and clear speaking? Yep, damn that Webb for disrupting the genteel and gracious ambience so carefully cultivated by the White House and the GOP in the last six years. Didn't you just know those darn Democrats were going to muck the place up with a bunch of macaca?
