22. do you have a substantive response to post #9?
I'll spend a few moments dealing with your derail, but I won't overlook the fact that you're derailing. It's probably your best play from a polemical standpoint, if this is all about the polemic.

"You cited Febble as closing the case in 2 months." No, I didn't. Wouldn't you look better if you could accurately paraphrase at least the post you are immediately replying to?

"Who still believes that Bush won fairly?" As I noted, this isn't about whether Bush "won fairly." Again, wouldn't you look better if you could accurately paraphrase at least the post you are immediately replying to?

So, maybe you intend to ask, what political scientists believe that Bush got more votes, and can I name them? Gee, what astrophysicists believe that Apollo 11 landed on the moon? Can I name them? Can I cite the books that attempt to prove it? These questions are bass-ackwards. If astrophysicists regarded the moon landing as a subject of serious debate, you would be able to document that. Same thing here.

TruthIsAll got tombstoned during the "Game" thread, and his allies abandoned it. If that somehow proves that I was "soundly trounced," I'd be curious to learn why.
