While we’re at it, a note on “intellectual dishonesty.” What is dishonest is your high-school-debating-club/right-wing-radio argument strategy. Although this is ostensibly a point-counterpoint format, I nonetheless introduce issues in a fairly objective, non-accusatory manner for our mutual review and discussion. Your modus operandi, conversely, is to make some bullying (and generally exagerated) assault on what is presumed to be my “position,” thus forcing me to defend against it. When, I search for the sensible middleground in my normally evenhanded manner, my own words are then used against me in a fashion that would make Rush Limbaugh proud. Nobody’s fooled!!
