George Will: Media’s ‘Seinfeld Election’ Claim an Effort to ‘Preemptively Deny’ GOP Mandate

November 2nd, 2014 11:03 AM

Responding on Fox News Sunday to a question from a Facebook user about the lack of a Republican agenda in this election, George Will zinged the media’s effort to undermine the expected GOP victories:

“I think what Tim is echoing is the belief that this is a Seinfeld election, an election about nothing, which is what the media says every time there’s a danger that the Republicans are going to get a mandate. This is a way of preemptively denying a mandate.”

Will proceeded to propose: “Actually, this is a Casey Stengel election and Mae West election.” The video includes his explanation for those comparisons.
