Paul Begala on the enduring myth that Republicans can be reasoned or negotiated with:
Like the myth of the unicorn, or Sasquatch, or a humble political

persists. High-minded media elites and goody-goody Democrats want to
believe in it; they need to believe in it, and in the face of all
evidence, they persist in that belief.
