When Chris Matthews got Congressman Pence (I think it was Pence) to avoid the "Do you believe in science?" question yesterday by bringing up evolution, he played it to the hilt. Turnabout is fair play. Let's make monkeys out of them.

"Sir or Madam, are you an ape? Are you a great ape? Answer this question directly, yes or no."

Suppose they answer:

"Well of course not, but I think you're asking about evolution. I agree with Pope Benedict that there is no confict between evolution and religion."

What do you ask as a follow up?

There’s a better variation on this, that can be drawn from the movie Gettysburg (or The Killer Angels, if you’d prefer).

There’s a scene that takes place the night before the third day where General Pickett and his brigade commanders are sitting around a campfire debating the merits of Darwin. One of them (Kemper, I think) makes a point that while they might all be willing to admit (or accuse the others) of being descended from apes, would any of them accuse General Lee of being descended from an ape?

So the variation goes like this:

“Do you believe that you are descended from an ape?”

“Yes”

“Do you believe that I am descended from an ape?”

“Yes”

“Do you believe that President Obama is descended from an ape?”

Ann Coulter used a variation of this the other week when she demolished that one liberal woman who kept asking Ann if she wanted to be water-boarded (because Ann said she believed it was a necessary interrogation tool for the WOT). Ann said no, and before the lib could spring the “gotcha”, turned it around and asked “Do you want to be aborted? You believe in that.” The lib lady was left a spluttering, stammering wreck of illogic. The whole exchange was a thing of beauty.
