28. it's pretty simple, actually

If you say why you disagree with her on the merits, there's really no need to impugn her integrity. You can even say you disagree without saying why, or you can ignore her entirely. It has nothing to do with having to "worship every word of Theisen's opposition."

It's fine to disagree with the late John Gideon, too -- but if you're going to impugn his integrity, then you've got some 'splainin' to do. (I'm utterly unpersuaded by your criticisms of Ellen, but I'll set that aside.) Sticking to the issues is likely to work better for you, depending of course on your objectives. If you don't want to be trusted or taken seriously, by all means, carry on.
