Persuasion via rational discourse has sharp limits. Just look at the two Trump threads here. We have an actual scientist like Gib patiently trying to explain how overwhelming evidence for climate change. Except someone like Ataturk with his shitty sophistry isn't in the business of rational discourse. Or when we have Medwed taking armchair potshots at any economic data that doesn't skew to his worldview, otc rationally explaining things isn't going to change what semblance...
Oh FFS, enough with all this boohoo the liberals are a small fringe minority but they're also so rhetorically powerful bellyaching bullshit. ethanm is opinionated and isn't right about everything.

Maybe more entertaining than it's been since his cry for term limits.
