George Will is behaving in his usual self-entitled over-inflated arrogant manner on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" when a glint of metal appears at the top of the screen--it's some sort of hook being lowered onto the set.
Oblivious, Will continues gassing on, condescending to All Who Might Witness His Word, as the tiny hook centers over his head. The hook lowers slowly ... slowly ... slowly ... until it makes gentle contact with Will's toupee. Being so intoxicated with the sound of his own voice, Will does not detect the precise mechanical grab of the hook upon his rug.
Then, just as slowly as it appeared, the hook ascends, lifting Will's shaggy mop right along with it.
Two outcomes are possible:
1. Will does not notice and we get to watch the rest of the gang gulp down guffaws while their faces turn rainbow colors.
2. Will does notice and we get to gleefully enjoy that moment when confusion gives way to the crushing realization that the crowning roof of his facade is exposed.
How beautiful would this be?
Only trouble is, I think Georgie may have gone and gotten plugs by now.
