How to Win an Argument With a Liberal
Step One: Take one, cogent, well-written Digby post which -- in passing -- cuts a deep, bloody gouge out of Andrew Sullivan's massive and painfully well-documented professional and ideological hypocrisy.*
Step Two: Lop off a big chunk of the piece's inconvenient "context" which gives it its moral and political momentum.
Step Three: Repackage Digby's now-truncated argument into the argument you wish she would have made so that you can rebut it with the kind of willfully obtuse narcissism that only America's premiere Gay Catholic Tory can muster.
Step Four: Ignore the hilarious irony that the willfully obtuse narcissism with which your rebuttal is written was exactly what Digby was taking you to task for in her post.
Step Five: Make sure your blog does not accept comments.
