  1. Can’t convince your opponents? That’s okay, you can just substitute insults for reasoned argument. Look at these great examples: “large base of conservative and surface-thinking Americans—those who don’t read, or, if they do, don’t actually think about what they’ve read”

    “Whoever says this country is a liberal one is an ignorant fool.”

    “Part of being poorly educated means you’re likely less able to critically think about issues.”

    “Conservatives often twist the ideals of our forefathers or use antiquated quotes from our forefathers to fit their base.”

    The irony is that this is all said in an article that claims “only when rationality replaces emotionality can we be begin to make serious changes,” Yet nothing quite says “I’m overly emotional” like flinging insults.

  2. Thanks for the shout! I appreciate your way of looking at it too. Unfortunately, I think convincing stupid people to stop breeding is a futile effort.
