In the March 10 edition of your paper George F. Will’s article (“Top GOP candidate for president”) referred to me and most of the people I know as “not sensible” people. He also made allusions to several well-known Republican leaders as being harmful to their party through some of the comments they have been making in apparent bids for consideration in the 2012 presidential primaries.
There was a time when I considered Mr. Will a reasonably astute commentator, but I fear his reason has deserted him somewhere along the way.
I consider anyone spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to cover up material that might cast doubt on his qualifications to hold a particular job, someone who just might not meet those qualifications. That, to me, is a reasonable way to think.
Why the Congress and the courts do not question such actions makes me wonder if the individuals therein are reasonable thinkers themselves … or sensible people, to use Mr. Will’s terminology.
You know, if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck and it swims like a duck, I have trouble calling it a swan.
