Not just any validation. It's validation from a conservative. I'm sure all of you read my post about the Values Voter debate when I said that everyone is a values voter -- It just might not be your values that I'm voting for. Well, George Will said the following on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday.

"Social conservatives should grow up. If they want to rally around somebody, why don't they try that? Huckabee needs support right now. If the social conservatives are half as important as they think they are, they would rally around one of these people. . . . But there's a vanity in this group right now. They call themselves "the values voters." I have news for them: 100% of the electorate are values voters. They vote [based on] their values. And this kind of semantic imperialism that they have where they say 'We vote values.' Everyone else votes what?"

Now I'm not going to get into who copied whom and whatnot. The only thing that matters is that it was said . . . twice!
