Somewhere, Roger Ailes' face has turned an alarming shade of crimson. Today on Fox News Sunday, George Will went maverick and gave something for the blue-haired set to wag their disapproving tongues at for some time to come.

Brace yourself.

George Will: We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school, and get a job, and become Americans. We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.

Chris Wallace: You got to know, I mean I can just sort of feel them clicking off, that we’re going to get tons of email saying, ‘This guy doesn’t understand the border. Why should we be dealing with Central America’s problem? We can’t import the problem, they’ve got to deal with it there, and our border has to mean something.

George Will: We can handle this problem is what I’m saying. We’ve handled what Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ a long time ago, and a lot more people than this.

What oh what is the world coming to when you can't reliably click on Fox News to get a good dose of racist hate against all of those filthy, diseased children overrunning our border to bring America to its knees?

George Will has said some pretty despicable things over the years without repercussion. Wouldn't it be ironic if he were to be sent packing for showing a modicum of humanity on reliably inhumane Fox News.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
