In the clearest sign yet that the establishment wing of the Republican party will not suffer a Herman Cain nomination, conservative villager George Will openly questioned Herman Cain’s character and alleged that there may be a “pattern” of abuse during his appearance on ABC’s This Week.
“A rule is when there are four women, there may be 24,” Will told ABC’s Christiane Amanpour Sunday. “There’s a pattern here. He’s says there’s no pattern because all four are not telling the truth. Well, we shall see.”
“For Republicans, it is a teachable moment because Republicans have said over and over again, character matters in leadership. We have this powerful government. The more power the government has, the more character matters in the chief executive. And this is a test for them.”
There are very few things I would agree with George Will on, but this is one of them, and it’s fairly astonishing to see such a prominent conservative voice say something like this on a Sunday morning talk show. Because like it or not, a lot of opinions are formed after watching on Sundays.
The only question I have is this — Is George Will a member of the “Democrat Machine?”
