No one can follow what columnist is saying

newsroom@islandpacket.comApril 27, 2014 

In a recent column, George Will, the conservative writer, called our president an adolescent.

Will is indeed a renowned intellectual, whose columns are read by millions I'm sure -- but probably understood by few.

You need a dictionary close by as you cope with his so-called intellectual discourse and vocabulary.

Ordinary folks simply can't read his columns, let alone understand them.

So if President Obama is an adolescent, then surely George Will is a snob.

Webster's definition of a snob is perfect here : "one who has an offensive air of superiority in matters of knowledge or taste."
