"In (Geo.) Will's aside that former Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn did not socialize because "these Washington society women never serve chili," one realizes that we have no characters in Washington anymore, only caricatures...."
"One reads Will's thoughts about newsman David Brinkley, "how anachronistic the maxim 'mind your manners' seems in the harsh light cast by much of today's television," and the unspoken indictment against the likes of Keith Olbermann and Ann Coulter is fully communicated."
Elizabeth Scalia - the The Anchoress - reviews George Will's new book, "One Man's America: The Pleasures and Provocations of Our Singular Nation."
She writes a richly detailed & enticing review of the latest prose from one of the great conservative minds of this generation.
Will does not use his pen like a Louisville Slugger, pounding those thoughts into the reader's head; he merely guides the reader's reason with the understated elegance of his wallop-packing prose.
