Rare, indeed, is the occasion when I agree with something Karl Rove says. But today, I find myself agreeing with the Republican strategist.
And although I have great respect for him, I don't always agree with Conservative columnist George Will. But I do today.
Then there's Ari Fleischer, one-time press secretary to George W. Bush, and now a political pundit. He's been irritating me for years--but not today.
These gentlemen are just three 0f the GOP voices to rightfully decry the acceptance by Republican Presidential candidates of an invitation to participate in a debate that will be moderated by Donald Trump.
I am somewhat relieved that these gentlemen, and other prominent Republicans, are speaking out. It reassures me that the entire Republican party has not gone bonkers.
It boggles the mind to think that Trump could have the unmitigated gall to insert himself back into Presidential politics after playing games with the American electorate last spring.
And it is equally stunning to learn that Presidential candidates would participate in a debate where the moderator was to endorse one of the hopefuls after the debate.
Add in the fact that a poll shows that 37 percent of New Hampshire Republicans and Independents would not vote for a candidate endorsed by Donald Trump.
Try to find some logic in all this, and when you can't, stop and think about an awful truth.
One of these Republican candidates could wind up being President.
