This Harper's poll has me at 13% before I've even (officially) announced.
It begs the question ... Why are the Democrats setting out to ruin the working class' chances to win meaningful representation in congress by, once again, running a candidate in a district that has no interest in their corporate representation and shoddy political theater?
So, Matt has already run for the office once and has kind of been running since that election, I guess, with "presence" on the radio. Despite that, he's polling at 13% and Mike Derrick is polling at 17% without having campaigned at all. I believe I'll just wait and see what Derrick has to say. It is possible he's a blue dog. Very possible. If that's the case, I'll be forced to write in Aaron Woolf. Because,
fuck Matt Funiciello and the Green Party.
corporate representation and shoddy political theater
What the fuck does that even mean?
Oh yeah, begs the question does not mean the same as raises the question.
To beg a question means to assume the conclusion of an argument—a type of circular reasoning. This is an informal fallacy, in which an arguer includes the conclusion to be proven within a premise of the argument, often in an indirect way such that its presence within a premise is hidden or at least not easily apparent.
Matt's a walking, talking fallacy machine, though. He specializes in ad hominem attacks and red herrings. And then there's the ever present hasty generalization that Democrats and Republicans are the same. That's been gone over enough here without rehashing it now. I will just add, though. Even if they were the same, that does not automatically make Funiciello better than they are.
