    ...from starting, when that's what they have a mind to do. However, while difficult, it is not at all impossible to stop a Gish Galloper from continuing.

    And Chris Hayes should've known from the start a full-bore Gish Gallop exactly what Jennifer Stefano was going to do.

    Mistake #1 was inviting her on as a guest.

    Mistake #2 was allowing her to begin her fact-free rant.

    Mistake #3 was failing to cut her off when it became clear all she was going to do was yell and yawp and scream at the camera.
