I think so, Brain … Truth is a powerful weapon, but we’re not allowed to bring weapons into a government building.
And Sarah Hoyt has a post over at According to Hoyt about how collectivist/progressives/liberals have created a style sheet that bends public discourse in their favor.
Look, half of the way you think is bounded in by words. And half of the way other people think too. By using the leftist chosen terms, you’re lending them your unwitting support.
Don’t lose the war of words. Come up with more accurate terms, and think about what you’re saying.
Don’t let the Left frame the terms of the debate. Make them deal with the Real World on its terms. Or if it’s to your advantage, force them to stick with a contradictory position. (Hey, AP, why are you complaining about your Gaza office? Destruction of property isn’t violence again, is it?)
Don’t let the wokie win.
I have no idea who won the debate tonight, but I have the feeling that the candidate who picked up the most votes was SMOD.
I think so, Brain … I was going to join the debate team, but they talked me out of it.
Bernie Sanders probably summed up the debate best by remarking that Jim Webb could have won the nomination in 1948. (Webb could have had a shot as late as 1960.)
And from a Maryland point of view … Martin O’Malley is still in politics. Who knew?
I think so, Brain … but I was talked out of joining the debate team.
It’ll be interesting to see how the polling goes, and whether Team Obama is cheered up or panicked in the morning. If the polls stay with the previous trend, expect panic.
