Bret Stephens on Strzok Hearing: Why ‘Republicans Are Called the Stupid Party’
STEPHENS: “I will say this. In a sense, it was a public service. First of all, it was an opportunity for Agent Strzok to rehabilitate his reputation after almost a year of — of smears. Secondly, it was a reminder, just watching the congressmen, that there’s a reason Republicans are called the stupid party. My old colleague at the 'Wall Street Journal', Holman Jenkins used to say that there are certain ideas that vanish in the presence of thought. The idea that there was a bias at the F.B.I. towards Hillary Clinton is simply refuted by the fact that the F.B.I. was the one agency of government which played a decisive role in getting Donald Trump elected."
