I accidentally listened to Lowell Green, a local AM Radio host, for a few minutes on the way into work today. Boy, what a mistake that was.
Green was talking about the recent “controversy” about our new Governor General, that she once might have been, gasp!, a separatist. His argument, such as it is, was awesome: “Constitutional scholars agree that you should not bar people from holding important public positions because of their political beliefs. Several scholars agree with this position. They’re dead wrong! I mean, come on!”
Not an exact quote, but not a misrepresentation. That was the substance of his argument: it is OK to bar people from with certain political beliefs from holding certain public offices because, I mean, come on.
I think I am actually stupider having listened to him than I was when I got into that cab.
