Hypocrisy Wears Hornrims

FAIR takes a look at George Will's conveniently relativistic attitude toward Senate filibusters:

1993, with Republicans in the minority: the filibuster embodies the sacred constitutional right of a minority to obstruct legislative action!

2003, with Republicans in the majority: the filibuster is a coup against the Constitution!

2010, with Republicans in the minority: the filibuster embodies the sacred constitutional right of a minority to obstruct legislative action!

I just had a flashback to when I was a kid and actually thought I should respect people who had syndicated opinion columns. After all, only individuals of great knowledge, thoughtfulness, and character could possibly merit such positions of cultural and political influence, right?

Then I grew up, went to college, and learned the meaning of the word sophist.
