Have you ever seen a real life strawman argument?

Click here if you want to.

I mean... this is... literally... the definition of a strawman argument.

They disagree with what they think the protest means, so they are pretending to be a member of the protest, and basing their actions on what they think the protest means.

This is putting words in the mouths of your political opponents, and then pointing at yourself and and saying that your opponents are foolish.

What does this prove?
What does this mean?
What does this accomplish?


Well, it DID accomplish something... It made the TEA partiers more likely to show up to counteract this feeble attempt, and it downplayed any of the honest crazies that showed up. Sooo... good job...

If this is the best the opposition can muster, I can't wait until November.
