HOW TO ‘DEBATE’ LIKE A CONSERVATIVE
Follow this link and watch the video. With one question Rep. Anthony Weiner backs Joe Scarborough into a corner over the fundamental issue of our nation’s need to reform health care: what benefit do insurance companies provide? Backing Scarborough into a corner isn’t a challenge for anyone with a couple of cooperating brain cells, but the disgraced former congressman‘s attempt to deflect Weiner’s powerful point earns him the dung-heel award. Scarborough knows he can’t answer Weiner’s question honestly without inadvertently endorsing single-payer health care, so he flops between feigning confusion and slurring Weiner’s simple, direct question into an attack on free-market ideals*. This is what passes for enlightenment from our corporate-run Fourth Estate. We are so screwed.
*‘free-market’ ideals would be very difficult to attack unfairly.
