Tu quoque ,[1] (Latin for "you, too" or "you, also") or the appeal to hypocrisy, is a logical fallacy that attempts to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position; it attempts to show that a criticism or objection applies equally to the person making it. This dismisses someone's point of view based on criticism of the person's inconsistency, and not the position presented.[2] Thus, it is a form of the ad hominem argument.

Seriously GOP, if the best you can do for this election cycle is "NO U" it is going to be a LONG couple of months.

vernonFL: No You!


Yeah, pretty much this. Obama campaign can simply wait until a few weeks before the election, take segments of every single Rmoney campaign ad and splice the 'No You!' guy pic in between.

Willie Geist thinks Romney and Townhall should just skip to the third date, break the sexual tension, copulate missionary-style, change their Facebook relationship statuses.

You know what, Malkin? I like you. You're not like the other people here in the trailer park. Oh no, don't get me wrong, they're fine people, good Americans. But they're content to sit back, maybe watch a little Fox and Friends on channel 57. Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16-ouncer. They're good fine people, Malkin. But they don't know what the Democrats are doing to the soil?

Willie Geist is not the blogger, Willie Geist is the voice of reason in a derposphere of insanity. Willie Geist, with just a mere look, can invoke Tommy Lee Jones reading a newspaper and cause you to kill yourself in shame. Willie Geist does not approve of Townhall shenanigans, but Willie Geist will approve of Romney having sex with the Fourth Estate in order to spawn a more pure form of derp.

Meanwhile in unrelated news, Republicans voted unanimously to quash the Disclose Act, further ensuring corporations can make massive contributions to political campaigns without having to worry about anyone knowing who, how much or why.

So, uh, Mitt? Fark yourself/

So what that is saying is, "If you point out that someone who is criticising you about something is also guilty of it, their guilt becomes irrelevant since a hypocrite is pointing it out"?

Ah, that's what I get for not clicking the Town Hall link. But, in fairness, last time I did I felt all dirty for about two weeks afterwards.

So this is a Malkin piece? Dat biatch is nuts.

I liked the ad in the sidebar: superimposed over a pic of Bill Maher, "Have the liberal media gone too far?"

Yes. Bill Maher is the voice of the liberal media. Go with that.

Also, Townhall...you may want to go back and watch some of the OWS protests. They weren't all smelly hippies looking for free granola; many of them have legitimate concerns - the very same concerns you mentioned - about the shady nature of the government-business relationship.

Your Teabagger friends, by the way, also have concerns about this relationship. It's just that they choose to place 100% of their trust in business, whereas OWS isn't placing trust in anyone. That was part of the reason they had no leader and no platform - these are always corrupted by those at the top.

So when are you pulling a permit for "Occupy all 15 of the Streets Mitt Romney's Houses Are On"?
 
2012-07-18 11:06:58 AM  
It's true. Quite a few democrats have supported Bain Capital.
 
2012-07-18 11:13:51 AM  
Yes and this will matter to exactly no one who hasn't already decided to vote for Romney.

While they are at it, they should bring up the Olympic uniforms fiasco as well. Because I'm sure that the uniforms worn in SLC were all made in American and not some sleezy totalitarian regime like Burma.

The New York Times admitted this week that their staff and other political journalists from every major media outlet submit their work to the White House for unprecedented review, editing and "veto power."

since the article(?) didn't provide it anyone got a link to the Times saying that?

what? you think it's nonsense and made up? but but i read it on the internet.
