Final Word? Not
Almost every blogger gets comments that are not publishable (you should see some that I get) but I do try to make my comments at other sites relevant and on topic without cursing etc. The blogger in question however finds any disagreement to be an "ad hominem attack", which is one of his favorite phrases.
Not surprising since most of his posts are exactly that... name calling and ad hominem attacks.
Take the post that he is referring to in his ad hominem attack on me for example. He used a "study" (cough cough) funded by none other than George Soros (General Betrayus ring a bell?) to allegedly "prove" that President Bush and VP Cheney were lying about WMD.
I responded with a quote (with no comment by me except "false statements?" referring to the title of his piece) from his hero Joe Biden from 2007 defending his statements in 2002 where he said Bush and Cheney were not lying and that it wasn't a "pipedream" concocted by Cheney and that in fact Saddam was a threat, was trying to get nukes and had to be removed from power.
The ad hominem bloggers excuse for Biden?
He got all his info from Bush and is of course therefore not responsible for what he says and was "simply wrong"- it's Bush's fault. LOL
Why then does Biden stand by those words to this day?
Why did Biden say that he researched his own information and came to his own conclusions independent of Bush and or Cheney?
Not smart enough to read the bloggers site and get educated I suppose.
To those on the left, (like Bill and Hillary) quoting them in context is considered an ad hominem attack.
Not surprising from someone who says on his blog that in Oklahoma history, "sooners" were just people that "arrived first" without mentioning how they "arrived first". Not exactly a true description of sooners to say the least. But the blogger in question never lets facts get in the way of a good story.
I suggest he change the name of his blog to "Ad Hominem Thoughts".
Thanks for the free promotion though... I do appreciate that.
