Ephron on Jim Webb


Excerpted From Nora Ephron's Blog:

According to George Will, newly-elected Virginia Senator James Webb was guilty of bad manners when he was asked by President Bush how his Marine son was doing in Iraq, and responded instead by saying that he hoped the troops would be home soon...

...So finally someone said to George Bush, Don't think that what you stand for is beside the point. Don't think that because you're President you're entitled to my good opinion. Don't think that asking about my boy means that I believe for even one second that you care. If you did, you'd be doing something about bringing the troops home.

George Will thinks this is bad manners.

I don't.

I think it's too bad it doesn't happen more often.

What...bad manners? "Disrespecting the office," not doubt.

Sorry George (Will). A man who so manifestly shows his own disrespect for the office, the President himself, deserves no respect--not from Webb, not from anybody.
