In the Obama case, hate speech from John Hagee and even Bob Jones University has been raised.
When trying to justify our continuance of the war in Iraq, opponents equate our kills with terrorist attacks.
In defending Bill Clinton's creative use of interns, every Republican who was currently or previously poking someone other than his wife was exposed.
In some cases, these arguments may have some merit. However, if you're not exposing the rank hypocrisy of the person you're arguing with, you're an idiot for even trying to use the argument. Do you understand why you are an idiot? Read on:
Moral equivalence has been used far too often in recent years to justify abominable behavior. I see this far too often whenever I (or any of the bloggers I regularly visit) point out someone's bad behavior. The stupidest form of this is to list all the political opponent you can when trying to argue a point. Here is part of a comment from one of my prior posts. If you want, read the whole post for more context:
A.Ann Coulter: Both a cunt and uglySimply put, you can't justify bad behavior by pointing to someone else's bad behavior. So learn how to argue a point or forever prove yourself an ignorant slut.
B.Ted Haggard smokes meth and has sex with gay prostitutes and actively campaigns against gay causes.
C.David Vitter has sex with prostitutes
D.Mark Foley tried to bone male pages
E.Dan Burton tried to bang every female in the Indiana Legislature
F.Oreilly sexually harassed Fox employees
G.Rush Limbaugh talks about values/family values yet has been divorced three times and also had his maid score sythetic heroin for him
And remember, I'm not calling you that. You take that title on yourself by your own behavior, dumbass.
