Solopsists. Narcissists. Sentientists (new word). George Will never seems to tire of putting all of society’s ills at the feet of those born between 1946 and 1964 (column, 5-12).
George W. Bush. John Boehner. Chris Christie. Haley Barbour. Jim DeMint. Tom Coburn. Narcissists all.
Charles Krauthammer. Kathleen Parker. Paul Gigot. Rush Limbaugh. Tony Blankley. Bill O’Reilly. Obvious solopsists.
Cal Ripken Jr. Nolan Ryan. George Brett. They probably think the world began when they became “more or less sentient.”
Mari Maseng Will. Mole?
I think it’s wise for Will to blame an entire class of Americans for everything that offends him. After all, we boomers are a large and diverse group, and there’s plenty of blame to go around.
