27. I live for it
It is why I breath air.

I was a debating student in college. I carry news stories and props with me. I look for an audience while engaged in a very animated discussion with a right winger and do not stop until I make a complete fool of my adversary in front of others. You see, I don't care if I can convince him, I use him as a foil to convince those who have yet to make up their minds.

That's what I thought DU was for, to give each other the ammo for the next day's battle.

One of my most recent went like this. When the freeper talked of Saddam's gassing of his own people, I reminded him it was during the Reagan Administration while Cheney was Sec. of Def, and Rumsfeld was Special envoy to the Mid-East. That was the time to speak up. "What did they say then?".

Then I produced a picture of Rummy shaking hands with Saddam which I took off this site. You could hear a pin drop, and that was the end of the discussion. KO.
