Badtux's Laws of Right Wing Discourse

  1. It is easier to win an argument if you simply make up your facts.
  2. Truth is over-rated.
  3. Winning is everything.

-- Badtux the Right Wing Penguin


  1. You forgot: if a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes the truth.

  2. I also know some left-wingers who abide by the same standards.

  3. If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.

    In other words, brainwash them.

  4. Number 3 should be #1. Winning really is everything to these people -- ask Cheney...

  5. I'd say you described the Rethuglicans to a tee......

  6. I thought it was "Rethuglickins" especially after their facination with teabagging .

  7. forgot the old stand-by:

    ad hominem arguments. "I don't a leg to stand on, issue-wise, so instead of targeting your issue I'm going to target you, personally."

  8. You forgot the predicate:

    One must be dumber than a box of rocks, or more sly than fox, feel extremely superior or inferior, suffer some deeply malign intention, or be a true believer in one's chosen faith in order argue the Rupublican line with gusto.



Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
