(*"unilateral debate" is the worst name ever, and I literally stopped writing this post for a minute to try and come up with a better name. But then my coffee became ready, and I stopped caring. If you have a better name for this I'll be happy to include it.)

When I saw a letter to the editor entitled "Republicans Offer Mindless Opposition", I knew I had to spring into action. Everyone knows that Republicans offer mindless support; get with it. Anyway, time to bring back my favorite type of post: the unilateral debate*. Here's how this works. I will post the original text from the letter in a different font, then go point-counterpoint with the letter writer, gradually propping up or shooting down all of his/her arguments. The beauty of this is that the person cannot defend themselves, and consequently all of my points are made eloquently and convincingly, allowing me to persuade everyone as to the accuracy of my insights.
