Reading Alexandra Petri’s Dec. 10 commentary regarding impeachment and the Republicans got me reflecting on a survey I received in the mail; from the Republicans, of all people.
Of course the wording in their questions is slanted in such a way that by one’s assenting to any of them, they are crediting Trump and/or the Republicans for having taken, or intending to take such action. Petri’s pointing out the absurdity in the partisan Republican mindset makes it all the more understandable that they would be asking the kind of leading questions that would raise objections in a court of law.
How does one reason with the unreasonable? I remember in my Officer of the Deck training from years ago that we were told not to try to argue with someone who is intoxicated. It seems the same protocol must be applied to Republicans these days. Just what is it that they are drunk on?
