    but you might want to think twice about using that rhetorical device too often.

    Does it make you sound like Donald Rumsfeld? You bet!

    •  Does sounding like Don Rumsfeld (3.95)
      make one seem more intelligent than one is? YES!

      Is it a device that Don Rumsfeld uses to avoid questions? I think it is!

      Does it have the intended effect, namely the hectoring, lecturing tone that a parent uses on a wayward child? Yes it does!

      Was it intended in this case due to the numerous interactions I have had with PhillyGal on this and related topics, in which no amount of historical data has any impact on the tendentious, illogical, jingoistic, and inaccurate assertions she continually throws around in irresponsible and inflammatory ways? Yes it was.

      Will it make a difference? No, probably not!

      Does it make me feel better to talk down to someone? In this case, I think it DOES!

      •  But who is really to blame for all of this site's (4.00)

        I blame gnomes for all of this infighting.

        Which gnomes, though, is the real question?

        As we know, there are known gnomes. There are gnomes we know we know. We also know there are unknown gnomes. That is to say we know there are gnomes we do not know. But there are also an unknown number of gnomes of unknown, the ones we don't know if we know they are gnomes.

        Can the American people accept the known complexities of gnome nomenclature, absorb our problems and move forward? I believe we can.
