George Will Patronizing Colbert...And Citing the Wrong Adams Book

This is great. Watch this clip. At 6:20-ish, Will alludes to a famous quote of Henry Adams. The quote is, "Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, had always been the systematic organization of hatreds...." No, I don't care that Will paraphrased it. What I find funny is that Will was so busy patronizing Colbert, he attributed that quote to Adams' (hilarious, satirical) novel Democracy when it actually appears in the first chapter of The Education of Henry Adams. Dipshit.
