George Will, the sophist philosopher-writer, aristocrat of aristocrats, has gone way too far for way too long bashing the street-smart Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

Will had it wrong on war in Iraq as did Dick Cheney and the Halliburton-oil baron gang out to score profits at the expense of America's treasure, namely using U.S. soldiers to take the bullets and do the dirty work, while the military-industrial complex President Eisenhower warned us of in his Farewell Address burned through taxpayer dollars to secure its avaricious goals.
The arena of their policies have left a wreckage in the Middle East that Will and his ilk will now have to live with watching a down-to-earth, soon-to-be President Trump on Sunday morning TV talk shows pave over Will's past persona and plethora of high-minded blather. As the poet Chaucer wrote, "Chickens come home to roost."
