Letter: Enough with Polman


I just finished “What will it take for Republicans to say enough is enough?” by Dick Polman. I have read columns from this writer before, so I know that rational argument is not his forte. Emotional bomb throwing is.

Polman’s entire column is in large part based on somebody named Reed Galen who according to Polman is a lifelong Republican who has now apparently bought into the Democrat argument that Donald Trump, his son, and maybe his entire administration are full-blown surrogates of Putin.

I don’t know who Reed Galen is, I have never heard of him, and don’t care about his political affiliation. But it bothers me that the so-called “proof of accommodation,” if not actual “treason,” is based on emotional labels and supposition.

The fact that Donald Jr. released all of his emails (take note, Hillary) doesn’t cut it with Polman, since the NY Times was ready to publish them anyway. The fact is he did publish them, didn’t deny that they were his, didn’t erase them.

It’s easy to recognize the thin gruel that passes for “evidence” to true believers on the left is grist for the hatred of Trump and his supporters. In the words of Polman, what will it take for Democrats to say enough is enough?
