GOP official takes a rather obtuse angle

In the article “Democrats pressed on climate change: Rich donors take up fight against global warming” (March 2), Rob Collins, of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, says, “Extremism in general-election politics is always a dangerous thing, especially when it’s in the hands of a small group of people with a lot of money.”

Well, we always knew that irony was not one of the GOP’s strong suits, but you have to admire the guy. Even for a Republican, making such an exquisitely obtuse statement with a straight face deserves applause.


It would be cruel to disturb such engaging innocence, but just maybe Collins might want to look up a few things on Wikipedia, such as, say, “Tea Party” and “Koch Brothers.”
