Several weeks ago in a Newsweek column about the Barbara Boxer-Carly Fiorina
Senate race, George
claimed it was "theoretically impossible to fashion an
abortion position significantly more extreme than Boxer’s, which is
slightly modified infanticide." This prompted Boxer to write an angry
letter to the editor (sadly not online), in which she accused Will of
distorting her views on partial-birth abortions. Not to be outdone, Will has now
written another column, this time rebutting
On the whole, it's kind of confusing, since Will's
curious habit of narrating YouTube clips fails to translate to the
printed page (or magazine websites that don't know how to embed), but he
does up the red-meat quotient by citing Boxer's "intellectual chaos."
Your serve, Senator.
