his recent piece in the Washington Post. A party of nitwits (in Cohen's estimation) the party has "turned hostile to thought, reason and the two most important words in the English language: It depends."
In Cohen's world, the Republicans are anti-intellectuals par excellence because the dolts in the party cannot appreciate nuance, subtlety and relativism.
Regarding abortion, Cohen writes,
"If you ask me what I think of abortion, I’d say, 'It depends.' It depends on whether you’re talking about the ninth month of pregnancy, the first, the health of the mother, the fetus — or, even, the morning-after pill. But in the Republican contest, the answer to the question is always the same: no, no and no again. Thanks for giving the matter such careful thought."
Evidently, Cohen hasn't given the matter such careful thought either.
I've addressed Cohen's lack of understanding of basic biology before regarding so called, same sex marriage [It's the Biology, Stupid.]. I suppose Cohen was asleep during whatever science classes he was required to take in school. The human fetus is human "whether you’re talking about the ninth month of pregnancy, the first, the health of the mother, the fetus — or, even, the morning-after pill." Cohen doesn't grasp this basic, scientifically verified fact.
Cohen goes on to claim the Republican's opposition to his view on global warming isn't based on their having studied the science.....you know, the way he's studied the science regarding human reproduction. (Cohen might want to read this from the Wall Street Journal).
I'm looking forward to Cohen's column this coming November, when he calls the United States a country of nitwits for having thrown Barack Obama out of office.
