A Reasonable Republican like ‘The Myth of the Unicorn’

by Ben Cohen

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

pundit, the myth of the reasonable, responsible, rational Republican

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.
