You can always tell when someone is losing an argument. He or she resorts to personal attacks and outrageous rhetoric. More often than not the tactic works since the general public is used to arguing in the same way.

California Democrat congressman George Miller repeatedly accused his GOP colleagues of waging “jihad” on Americans.

On PoliticsNation, a typical MSNC tirade show, Joe Madison, “The Black Eagle” who can be heard on Sirius Satellite radio, called Rush Limbaugh a “fat ass” for comparing programs like ObamaCare to “drug addiction.”

When you can’t deal with a person’s arguments, denigrate him or her. Look what they tried to do to Sarah Palin because she was connecting with the American people. The media destroyed her (at least they tried to), the same media that are propping up Obama and telling us how intelligent he is.

I know a lot of very intelligent people, many with earned PhDs, and I can assure you that I would not want some of them to run for political office. Intellect does not always lead to good policy decisions, especially when it’s power and control they want.

David Halberstam’s The Best and the Brightest was published in 1972. “The focus of the book is on the foreign policy crafted by the academics and intellectuals who were in John F. Kennedy’s administration, and the consequences of those policies in Vietnam.” The phrase “the best and the brightest” referred to President Kennedy’s “‘whiz kids’ — leaders of industry and academia brought into the Kennedy administration — whom Halberstam characterized as arrogantly insisting on ‘brilliant policies that defied common sense’ . . .”

These so-called intellectuals got us into Vietnam, got more than 58,000 Americans and 1.5 million Vietnamese killed. The iconic scene of people desperately trying to escape by helicopter is a fitting image of what some of the “best and the brightest” can do.

You know Madison is worried since he brings up the issue of race multiple times. It’s always a winner in a losing argument. For the record, Madison is black.

“Let me tell you,” Madison said, “they just can’t stand the fact that they’ve got a very smart, intelligent black man that has out-thought them, out-campaigned them, beat them twice without any controversy.”

He wasn’t finished with the race thing. “So here you have these folks who primarily live in these lily white congressional districts for the most part, and then they’re trying to use black vernacular to try to sound like they’re hip and that somehow Obama is just too black to be president of the United States.”
