I've been thinking a lot lately of 1 line retorts and comments suitable for public consumption. The idea here is to drop these little bombs in not so random places so as to cause conservative brain synapses to melt down.
The headline might work well if the speaker is up on the Ryan budget plans for SS and Medicare. Know your stuff.
Has this guy ever heard of Jesus?
This is particularly effective among devout Christians of any flavor. No further comment necessary. Let a lifetime of christian indoctrination do the work.
I guess he must think everybody is as greedy as he is.
This works in any number of scenarios. Particularly effective when countering the Ryan 'appeal to greed' - no changes in SS or Medicare for current seniors. Again, additional comment unnecessary.
The object is to cause a cognitive dissonance 'brain fart'. I will continue ruminating and collecting zingers but feel free to add your own. The goal is subtlety and creative ambiguity. Leave no fingerprints.
