For some reason I missed this wonderful clip posted by Blackiswhite, the Imperial Consigliere. It is an outstanding exposition on why liberals do not debate, they accuse. Obongo's Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina's instructions to "punch back twice as hard" make a lot more sense when you realize the context.
Liberals are like some weird strain of mud dweller that, when disturbed, resorts to violent writhing to raise a clod of silt to confuse and obfuscate and then fouls itself as a defense mechanism.
When you counter their ill-conceived attempts to impose asshattery on an entire nation, the only defense they have is to piss on you and raise a stink.
