I remember reading somewhere (perhaps D.A. Carson’s The Gagging of God) that a sometimes effective tool when reasoning with the unreasonable is to repeat what they said to you back to them. The idea is that when they hear their illogic coming out of someone else’s mouth, they might be more prone to see their error.
Along these lines, I wonder if Barbara Streisand actually heard the words coming out of her mouth at her June 24 “John Kerry and Friends” fundraiser:
I MEAN G – O – P – EOPLE –
WHO’D BELIEVE THERE’S SUCH PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD?
THEY’RE DIVIDING THE PLANET’S OIL
ACCORDING TO RICHARD “POIL”
AND THEY’RE ALL JUST TRAINEES
…THEY’RE LYING –
WHILE THE GLOBE IS FRYING –
AND THE FISHES ARE DYING IN THE WORLD.
FOR ALL OF THE POLLUTION:
IS JUST TO BEAR IT AND GRIN,
AND PRACTICE NOT BREATHING IN.
BUT THINGS ARE GONNA BE GREAT.
Yes, that’s the kind of stuff being sung at Democratic Party fundraisers—so much for “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy.” Do they even realize how foolish things like this makes them look? It appears that not only the emperor of the Democratic party has “new clothes,” their jesters are unknowingly naked as well.
