George F. Will
America’s political shenanigans may never have been this entertaining, says Will. Democrat Mark Critz touted conservative ideals (such as being pro-gun and anti-Obamacare) and won Pennsylvania’s congressional election. Connecticut’s senatorial candidate, Democrat Richard Blumenthal, discussed his apparently false claim that he fought in a foreign war. Scott Cohen, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, broke down over accusations of domestic battery and steroid use. Will cites other examples of this entertaining political scene, noting that the Republican party is nominating more conservative or libertarian candidates (from Kentucky’s Rand Paul to Utah’s Mike Lee) amid accusations of being “unhealthy.”
Will is a twice-weekly columnist for The Post, writing about foreign and domestic politics and policy.
