Conservative commentator George Will chastised high-ranking Republican officials Sunday morning for not condemning Rush Limbaugh strongly enough for his comments towards Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke.

Will was specifically not pleased with House Speaker John Boehner’s and presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s response to Limbaugh’s comments, telling the This Week panel that conservative leaders need to ‘police their own kind.’

“It was depressing because what it indicates is that Republicans leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh,” he said. “They want to bomb Iran, but they’re afraid of Rush Limbaugh.”
