Being Right Means Never Having To Say You’re Wrong


Attaturk on the right’s inability to admit being wrong about anything: “You can never say, ‘Y’know, that’s a good point, maybe I’m wrong.’ ”

And so it is with The Village and [its] attitudes toward the teapartiers and ending civil discourse by screaming over it, an Orange Pekoe Putsch. After all, as Marc Ambinder reflexively said, “it’s just like the liberals when Bush tried to reform social security”.

Well, no. When Josh Marshall reminded Ambinder that the protest over social security “reform” did not involve actually screaming at meetings to ruin them, threatening representatives with physical violence including assassination, and generalized douchebaggery, the response was telling:

Democrats may have used different tactics — protesting outside of places as opposed to inside of them — but that’s not terribly germane.

Well, aside from that being the entire point of what Marshall just said, and that it completely contradicts your original argument, you’re right Marc, it is not terribly germane, to you.
