  •  The point of Reinhardt's smackdown (0+ / 0-)

    is that he took on Barone in his own area of expertise and left Barone's ignorance and hypocrisy naked to everyone's view.

    From my perspective, that in itself is a good thing.  The more often things like that happen, the less possible it is for anyone to take the blowhard seriously.

    Reinhardt offers to have a conversation among adults about adult subjects.  He avoids the ad hominems and remains on the data.  The data he presents are conclusive and irrefutable.  Barone comes off as an idiot, but Reinhardt never has to say that explicitly.  Any marginally literate reader can see it for themselves.
