Confusing Rhetoric with Logic
Amendment 41, which limits lawmakers to gifts under $50, would prevent search-and- rescue teams from rescuing lawmakers stranded on the top of a mountain, maintains Senate Minority Leader Andy McElhany. Not that that's a bad thing. "There are a few of my esteemed colleagues I wouldn't mind leaving stuck on a mountain," the Colorado Springs Republican said, with a laugh. McElhany didn't name names.Sure, that was a humorous tidbit, but we've officially reached the silly plateau if McElhany truly believes that Amendment 41 would prevent government employees from being rescued in case of an emergency. Is Amendment 41 a mess? Sure. Does it prevent things that it probably wasn't intended to prevent? Absolutely. But let's not confuse rhetoric with logic.
