Inanity or Insanity?

This morning I was watching MSNBC or CNN or Headline News I can't remember which anyway they were interviewing some nobody Democrat Congressman. The host asked his guest" why should we consider entering into bilateral talks with North Korea when they have violated virtually every agreement they have ever entered into with us"

The Congressman's response was the typical response one would expect from the left: "Why not try it" "It couldn't hurt".

Well Mr Congressman it could hurt, it could hurt a lot. An Agreement where only one side honors the terms is far worse than no agreement at all. It only serves to hamstring the party operating in good faith and strategically benefit the cheater.

Einstein had it right, he said: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." The Democrats have been suffering from this intellectual insanity for decades and regardless of how many times a given course has failed the more determined they seem to be that the next time it will succeed.

Inane certainly, but insane? Einstein would say yes.
