George Will on the "the Huey Long from Chicago's Hyde Park"

The normally measured and sober George Will, in an essay about Romney's vice-presidential options, provides a remarkably sharp-- and accurate-- commentary on President Obama:

For the next decade, American politics will turn on this truth: Slowing the growth of the entitlement state is absolutely necessary and intensely unpopular. In this situation, which is ripe for a demagogue such as the Huey Long from Chicago’s Hyde Park, Romney’s choice of running mate should promise something Washington now lacks — adult supervision.

Spot on.
