If you have something you dislike about Cheney's proposed ideas or policies, then post them up.
Argue the facts, but stop the ad hominem attacks without any facts to back them up.

For instance, I say Obama is an ass-wipe because he ...

I don't think seeking counsel from politicians is a wise course of action, especially these three. If you want a lot of purposeless death though Cheney is your man.

Y'all aren't paying attention. Adak knows that "asswipe" is an ad hominem attack; he's saying it's allowed because he has "facts" to back up the attack. It's not slander if it's true, etc.

Like this: Adak is a pissant troll, and I say that because he posts blatant falsehoods and then ignores the well-cited refutations.

How does one go about proving that Obama is an "ass-wipe"

Of course, (almost) every father has wiped an ass or two at one time
or another, so maybe what Adak is saying about Obama is true.

To carry this further, is Adak an ass-wipe too ?
Even if he is not, I'll bet he is at least a nose-wipe.

Etc.... Ad nauseam

Since Adak was never an ass-wiper, can you imagine what his underwear smells like?

Adak lies, and brings a tear to my eye.

I'm sorry, that was an ad homonym attack. What I meant was he was sleeping on the ground and I tripped over him and a stick tore through my cornea. He left me in the dust, and that wasn't right.

I will agree with the adding nausea part, though.

So, yeah. Only seek his counsel in order to eliminate his advised course of action from the available options.

Right, his voting record as a congressman. It's his shenanigans in appointed jobs and vice-president, that are ugly.
