Great column, Jim!
I would like to send this to some of my Republican friends, but they would only see it as an attack on their beliefs or an indication that I’m trying to start a fight.
To them, everything is an “us vs. them” “good vs. evil” battle with Republican principles on the side of good and everyone else dishonest, corrupt members of a liberal conspiracy out to steal their money and give it to the lazy, dumb, poor people.
Their current tactic to avoid facing the reality of Mr. Crazy Snake is that it doesn’t matter what kind of person he is, that his character doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is what he does and since they like what he does, that means he’s still their guy.
I don’t know how you can penetrate that type of thinking.
