Point/Counterpoint

“If you can somehow force a liberal into a point- counterpoint argument, his retorts will bear no relation to what you’ve said — unless you were in fact talking about your looks, your age, your weight, your personal obsessions, or whether you are a fascist. In the famous liberal two-step, they leap from one idiotic point to the next, so you can never nail them. It’s like arguing with someone with Attention Deficit Disorder.”

— Ann Coulter, via John Hawkins’ article at Townhall, “The 25 Best Quotes About Liberals.”

QED:

“Charlie Rangel is to be considered a saint because of some (arguably) good things he did forty years ago that we’re not allowed to forget.

“Ted Kennedy was considered a saint in spite of a lot of decidedly bad things he did forty years ago (and ever after) that we were not allowed to remember.

“Nice set-up they got…”

Which is why some people have decided that it’s no more mister nice guy.
