Will To Reich: ‘You Are A Pyromaniac In A Field Of Strawmen’

As usual, Will sounds exceedingly articulate in flogging Robert Reich’s lousy arguments:

Strawmen arguments, and appeals to envy, are really all the Left has. The only reason IngSoc ‘succeeded’ in 1984 was through total control of information. The Left seems incapable of grasping the degree to which it stands revealed a pile of hooey. Robert Reich should just retire. But I’m sure he’ll stick around, promising not to rest in his quest for economic justice until everyone is above median income.

I think this post at Trog’s place is vaguely related, but that freakish animated .gif of a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice with the makeup off, crawling on all fours kinda made my head ‘splode.

    Let’s not get all excited about Will here.

    Will is the guy who smeared Gingrich a “Marxist.”  Will NEVER went after Obama’s connections, his associations, his inclinations, his radical policies.

    But he couldn’t help himself but smear Gingrich.

    I wrote off Will after he got divorced, which was decades ago.

    NOT because of the divorce, but because his mental powers underwent a marked diminishment.

    Remind me not to ride a NYC elevator with Robert Reich ever.

    […] disdain for living in Reich’s blend of 1984 and Atlas Shrugged. Reich could at least refute Will’s devastating point that the Baby Boomer households have sucked up the wealth, to the detriment of anyone younger. […]
