George Will, enjoying Hillary's liberal problems a little too much, seems to have drunk too much Schadenfreude and lost his touch with words:

For decades, liberals, believing that "self-esteem" is a universal entitlement that is endangered by nearly universal insensitivity, have striven to make everybody exquisitely sensitive to slights. Liberals have become industrialists as an indignation industry has burgeoned. It writes campus speech codes, infests corporations with "sensitivity training" workshops and "consciousness-raising" retreats, and generally enforces the new right to pass through this veil of tears without tears or even being peeved.

Make that "vale of tears." Maybe a copy editor is to blame.
