Oh, so Chuck Schumer IS invested in a strong GOP? Riiight.

Why don't you explain that one? Or comment on the rest of it?


I don't have to comment on that, because I neither said, nor intended to say that.

Here's your "logical test":

A simple logical test disproves the smart politics idea: would Chuck Freaking Schumer approve of any bill that helps the GOP? Hell no he wouldn't.

The clear assumption behind your statement is that Charles Schumer would not approve of any bill that helped the GOP, and that anyone who disagreed with that statement has failed your "logical test".

But the logical test itself is illogical, because it has not been demonstrated that Charles Schumer would vote against any bill simply on the basis that it would help Republicans.

And that's what I said when I wrote:

That is not a logical test. That is simply a fallacy dressed up in respectable clothes.
