Quote of the Day (October 3, 2010)

Darko Festin:
"When debating issues, conservative language is generally characterized by a reasoned line of thought, based on logic, historical precedent, and/or well established facts. Liberal language, when debating issues, is characterized by labeling the opposition and [deflection]... by demonizing the person making the argument. It’s often said that conservatives win in the arena of ideas because liberal ideas don’t hold up to intellectual scrutiny. To date, I have not heard one liberal offer me a reasoned argument for their animosity toward Sarah Palin. Why is she so hated by the left? Here’s what I hear. 'She’s stupid. She’s a whacko fundamentalist Christian that doesn’t believe in evolution. She says she can see Russia from her front porch.' Excuse me, but I’m having a hard time finding any measure of intellectual honesty in those comments... George Washington, along with a lot of other distinguished people in our history were Christian fundamentalists."
