    If you look beyond Donald Trump’s comprehensive unpleasantness — is there a disagreeable human trait he does not have? — you might see this: He is a fundamentally sad figure. His compulsive boasting is evidence of insecurity. His unassuageable neediness suggests an aching hunger for others’ approval to ratify his self-admiration. His incessant announcements of his self-esteem indicate that he is not self-persuaded. Now, panting with a puppy’s insatiable eagerness to be petted, Trump has reveled in the approval of Vladimir Putin, murderer and war criminal.

    ...Putin “kills journalists, political opponents and invades countries,” Trump replied that “at least he’s a leader.”...

    ...Perhaps the 56 journalists murdered were coincidental victims of amazingly random violence that the former KGB operative’s police state is powerless to stop. It has, however, been “proven,” perhaps even to Trump’s exacting standards, that Putin has dismembered Ukraine....

    ...Putin kills journalists, the United States kills terrorists, what’s the big deal, or the difference?...

    ...Conservatives’ highest priority now must be to prevent Trump from winning the Republican nomination in this, the GOP’s third epochal intraparty struggle...

    ...It is possible Trump will not win any primary, and that by the middle of March our long national embarrassment will be over. But this avatar of unfettered government and executive authoritarianism has mesmerized a large portion of Republicans...

    George Will is out-dated, irrelevant, know-nothing blowhard

    there will always be a "conservative" party or movement in the US, just like in every other friggin' country

    whom is he kidding?

    Well, I think he meant his kind of conservative. He's very particular, ya know.
