The Roundtable

Crooks and Liars has a clip of the loathsome George Will from This Weak. More on him later, perhaps, when the full transcript shows up. But, let's consider the composition of the Roundtable on that show.

Newt Gingrich - conservative.
George Will - conservative.
Fareed Zakaria - conservative.

Now, it's true that Zakaria happens to be intelligent and sane, and I wouldn't describe him as a partisan Republican, but our media should stop putting "conservatives who aren't obviously insane" as stand-ins for liberals.
