18. but you won't argue that on the merits
Edited on Thu Oct-02-08 01:45 PM by OnTheOtherHand
In order to know whether comparing me to a "holocaust denier" is intellectually valid -- setting aside other considerations -- you would have to be willing to discuss substance.

The exit poll discrepancies don't provide strong evidence for widespread vote fraud. That's not just my opinion, it's the working consensus of political scientists and survey researchers. There's no reason for me to concede the point; there's no reason for me to drop the point. As for whether I "disparage" people who think otherwise, well, I'm fairly sure I've never likened any to holocaust deniers -- and I'm always willing to explain my views.

I didn't respond to the OP at all, but I did respond to the trailer, and my response was on point.

I doubt that telling a reporter the truth about Kathy Dopp harmed the cause of banning DREs in Utah, but I respect your decision. I think that Kathy holds lots of well-intentioned people hostage in this way. (ETA: I think it's worth remembering that the context wasn't some story about DREs in Utah; it was Kathy's attack on conference organizers in Minneapolis.)
