Comments: My First Endorsement

Ah, Jade Gold, professional troll and MacDiva impersonator. Consider yourself blessed to be attacked by such a font of wisdom.

Your new friend's other recent subject appears to be accusing John Cole of considering Clinton worse than McVeigh, despite clear evidence to the contrary.

You've been trolled! I'm so jealous.

She's just garden variety. Perhaps you should check out her ego-stroking.

"Possessing a rare combination of wisdom and humility, while serenely dominating your environment you selflessly use your powers to care for others."

She doesn't advance arguments or even talk about what she thinks. She just points out how evil and degraded everyone else is.

No comments and no original posts. Yeah - she's a real winner.

First, ditto physics geek.

Second, I think this would make a *marvelous* pull-quote:

"a shining example of the Great American Success Story"

On a serious note, I have found that an accurate judge of the strength of a person's argument can be made based upon how much of it can be taken literally. This is because if someone is making a serious, intellectual attack, it will be stated concisely and precisely with terms that are easily understood.

Tell me, at any point in your life, have you been followed about by a team of circus folk with nets, pillows, and other safety accoutrements? And tell me, have you ever found yourself without obligation to actually lift a finger to your own benefit?

I dare say that this is not the case... yet, Jade appears to know better than you.

I wish Jade would troll me. What are they called? Strawmen?

Color me jealous. Good job!

Put yourself in JadeGold's shoes. Its own existence poses a contradiction.

Jade, a precious stone.

Gold, a precious metal.

How do you reconcile your two disparate precious natures into a single individual?

It's not as easy for others as it seems to be for you, my dear.
