I'm not a Donald Trump fan. In my opinion he's pure flim-flam. So imagine how delighted I was to hear that George Will called Trump "a bloviating ignoramus". Will's candor was refreshing. And spot-on.
The forum for Will's erudite verbal ballistic missile was this past Sunday on This Week on ABC. Will , in typical form, was pontificating on the political scene. In the present instance, it concerned Trump's appearance with Mitt Romney at an upcoming fundraiser in Vegas. "I do not understand the cost-benefit here. The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low, and you can still intrude into American politics."
Trump's intrusion into American politics has become an absolutely buffoonish carnival act. For a while ---as a publicity stunt--- he toyed around in the media with the fatuous idea of running for president. But by far his most moronic mantra has been--- and pathetically still is--- harping on the birther issue. Most sane Republicans consider this a quacksalver non-starter. Even the Romney team promptly distanced the candidate from such a trumped-up sophomoric polemic.
So why dignify the rants of such a "bloviating ignoramus"? Romney, let's see some Will-power. Here is a good time for you to draw a line in the sand and stand on principle. If you only had any.
