Bob the Tomato on Kmiec’s Endorsement

by Shannen W. Coffin

As Professor Adler has noted, Doug Kmiec’s endorsement of Barack Obama has been roundly criticized, so I’m not sure there is much more to add. But since I spend a large portion of my time at home watching Veggie Tales with my kids, I thought immediately of this Veggie Tales dialogue about a monkey.

If you substitute “If he doesn’t support the war, then I support him” for “If it doesn’t have a tail, it’s not a monkey,” you’ve pretty much summed up Kmiec’s logic.

As Bob the Tomato would say, “I think there’s something wrong with your logic, Professor Kmiec.”
