That's nothing like Ol Cut and Run's proposal.
One "Les Nessman" responded:
"Wow. The Chickenhawk ad hominem comes out. How original. Very persuasive, Fred. Very mature."
"It's actually a good sign to have it used against you; it means the other side has given up intelligent argument and conceded defeat."
I was also think about a statement I'd seen on another right-wing blog, something to the effect that Liberals would define Lincoln as a chickenhawk. I always find it funny that the "Father of the Republican Party" was also the person respocible for many of the things that modern Republicans despise about government. A strong centralized Federal Government that trumps states rights, Income tax, proto-affirmative action.
. . . Anyways:
An ad hominem argument is a logical fallacy that involves replying to an argument or assertion by addressing the person presenting the argument or assertion rather than the argument itself or an argument pointing out an inconsistency between a view expressed by an individual and the remainder of his or her beliefs.
