Default Hush whiners

My conservative and libertarian friends, are your sensibilities so delicate that you cannot abide to look upon a single red-faced liberal with a passionate point-of-view? I've been living my whole life surrounded by right-wing animus towards liberalism. Now that the Representative Men (cf. Emerson) of conservatism -- Bush, Delay and Hastert -- have disgraced your movement and ruined the country, liberals aren't really in much of a mood for the smug sophistries that Conn Carroll has to offer.

Granted, Matt is obviously an inexperienced debater. Attacking the sincerity of your opponent rarely comes off as a position of strength. If you're going to do it at all, you must employ irony and sarcasm (cf. Robert Wright). Either that or acquire the power to turn off your opponent's microphone.

An occasional outburst of awkward emotion is human and healthy. It is not going to kill civility. So quit your whining.
