One of the finest journalistic minds in America

Permalink +

Mon, Oct 30, 2006, 4:13 pm  //  John Servais

George Will is a respected conservative columnist - and I invite you to read his current column in Newsweek. It is two pages - not long - and please read to the last two-word sentence. You know George is an uncompromising conservative and has one of the finest minds of any journalist in America. He does not yell or insult people like Rush or O'Reilly or the other pseudo conservatives on FoxNews. George is the real thing - conservative Republican. Read what he has to say about Iraq.
