136. So... Mr.Hand...
While I am talking to your scholarly alter ego just a few floors up, you are down here cutting political deals... Making alliances based on nothing other than political agreement. Lining up with those who agree that Bush won fair and square (it sure wasn't the strength of the argument that you were commenting on). More, I actually heard you making a direct appeal to a "silent majority". ...And laying out a political strategy for that as well.

The most hurtful blow would be that you ask me what appears to be an honest question upstairs, and then make fun of my answer before I have even given it, down here. Lucky thing I had already noticed this duality of behavior or I would have been genuinely wounded.

Instead, it seems to me that:

Your objection is not logical...
Your objection is not scientific...
Your objection is not because you are unusually reasonable...
Your objection is not because you are a partisan for the "truth"...

It occurs to me that your objection is because you are just a partisan.

Your objection is entirely political...

And, why not? It is not a crime. I don't think it makes you a Republican or anything remotely resembling one. Hell, I freely admit to being one myself (a partisan, that is... for the other opinion... although, i'm a guessin' it would be easier to change my mind than it would be to change yours)...

But I do have a question for you:

Why maintain the fiction of the other guy who is "undecided", etc?

Seems like a waste of time to me...
