George F. Will, one of the sharpest political commentators and columnists in the business, is reportedly leaving ABC News after 30 years of service to join the team over at Fox News. Wow. What a pickup:

Political columnist and author George Will is joining Fox News as a contributor, executive vice president of news Michael Clemente announced today. Will jumps to Fox News after more than 30 years at ABC News, where he was a political commentator and panelist for “This Week.”

“We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join FOX News. His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list,” Clemente said in a statement.

He will appear across all FNC programming, including as a panelist on “Special Report with Bret Baier” and “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.”

Does this mean that Charles Krauthammer and George Will will now be appearing regularly on “Special Report” together? Why yes, I believe it does. Splendid. This, my friends, should be a ton of fun to watch.

I'll leave you with this:
