Quote of the Day

. . . In Minnesota and elsewhere, activist personalities and organizations such as Michael Bayly and OutFront Minnesota are highly organized and trained. These spokesmen can spin on a dime and come up with clever sounding, statistic-based replies* to just about every single challenge they are presented with. . . .




* For an example of what Terry Nelson is referring to, see my comments in response to this post on his blog.

I read through that comment stream. Scary stuff. Well done at maintaining a very reasonable argument in the face of some pretty unreasonable concepts.

Clint said...

Your responses to the hate-filled folks on that website were so patient, thorough and kind, Michael. It is good to see that people are finally getting as scared of you as they should be!

Paul said...

Ooh, "statistic-based replies"! You have to watch out for that kind of satanic trickery!

So, in other words, you have a better argument.

You are so passionate, but so level headed and respectful toward all individuals and their opinions. You really are an inspiration, Mr B. Honestly!

Michael. Great work at being such a "real" threat. Your ability to spin is an inaccurate assessment. I call it being smart, articulate, and well-spoken!
Way to go!!!
