  • Attacking at every turn is the oldest tactic in the book. It is effective because:

    1. Defending always implies, however vaguely, an admission of fault.

    2. Attacking turns the attention to others’ faults.

    One has to admit that the right in general have their rhetoric strategy down pat. The only effective way to respond would be counterattack, but the left are not nearly concerted enough to mount a front that can polarize anyone against the right.

    It would be nice if this media war – because that’s what it is – could be won on the basis of argument, debate and evidence. But that’s not possible, and the left take blow for blow for trying to stick to those guns.
