    That's exactly what I remember ... he used to be slightly reasonable, right up until Clinton. Then he flipped. Will's general tick to look down his nose at commoners became a tendency and then a defining feature.

    To this day, I don't understand what Bill Clinton turned on in the conservative id, but that hate is pretty much what drove us to where we are now. Will just put an intellectual face on it.

    •  As in the comment, he realized that the GOP was (6+ / 0-)

      not always going to be in power.
      He also probably thought that WJC was an illegitimate POTUS due to the Perot factor.

      He's the pseudo intellectual that those of us in academia hate. Thinks the world owes him it's oyster because he completed a degree, but won't do a lick to expand knowledge in the whole.

      The whole trend from the GOP and the right that it's "bad" for more people to vote shows their true colors even more. They would prefer that we have royalty with a legion of loyal toadies who run things for the royalty, they being the bestowed power toadies.

      WTF!?!?!?! When did I move to the Republic of Gilead?!
