A little political speculation

Recently, I heard some more people talking about how we ought to have open relations and dialogue with Hamas, the terrorist group that is currently running the Palestinian Authority. They say that they are the legitimately-elected government of the Palestinian people, and we should recognize that and deal with them as we would any other government.

Now, that’s a straw-man argument. The United States has never called the Hamas-led PA “illegitimate,” to the best of my knowledge. They just refuse to have any direct dealings with them — and rightly so.

But back to my point. I’d love to try a little experiment.

I’d like to get all the Americans who argue that we should have dealings with Hamas together and put them in one set.

And then I’d like to get all the Americans who say things like “George W. Bush is not my president” and question the legitimacy of his office and still have “Let’s Not Elect Him In 2004 Either” stickers on their car and the like, and put them all together in a second set.

How much overlap would there between the two groups?
