    Don’t look at me; I’m voting for Obama. However, Morty, if what you say comes about, I can grin at those who did vote for him and say “I told you so….” ; >

    And what is it exactly that you like about Willard? His empathy? His knowledge of foreign affairs? How he treats his animals? How his budgetary numbers work out?
    Oooooh, I know. I know. You don’t like Willard at all. It ’s just that you hate Obama.

    You realize that the problem in Caliornia is localized, don’t you? Transient refinery problems caused this current spike. California gets its gas from only a couple of refineries because of its need for special blends. Both of these refineries have suffered recent mishaps. Prices are headed down as I type.
    Where I live (Indiana), prices have come down 30 cents or so in the past couple of weeks.
    Low information Romney voter, I ’spose.

    This also fits with the communist tactic of ignoring your opposition. “Why should we lower ourselves to debate with these schmucks?” It also keeps you from having to answer hard questions…

    You could have found with a simple search:
    Duane Tolbert Gish (born February 17, 1921) is an American biochemist and a prominent member of the creationist movement.
    Gish has been characterized as using a rapid-fire approach during a debate, presenting arguments and changing topics very quickly. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, has dubbed this approach the “Gish Gallop,” describing it as “where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the evolutionist hasn’t a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate”7 and criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents.8 The phrase “Gish Gallop” has come to be used as a pejorative to describe similar debate styles employed by proponents of other, usually fringe beliefs, such as homeopathy or the moon landing hoax.910

    Gish has also been criticised for using a standardized presentation during debates. While undertaking research for a debate with Gish, Michael Shermer noted that for several debates Gish’s opening, assumptions about his opponent, slides and even jokes remained identical. In the debate itself, Shermer has written that while he stated he was not an atheist and willing to accept the existence of a divine creator, Gish’s rebuttal concerned itself primarily with proving that Shermer was an atheist and therefore immoral.11 Massimo Pigliucci, who has debated Gish five times, said that he ignores evidence contrary to his religious beliefs.12 Others have accused Gish of stonewalling arguments with fabricated facts or figures.13

    Gish is a nutty right winger, just like you!

    Listen…I heard the debate – most of it- on the radio, I didn’t hear anything like the “gish gallop” coming out of Mitt.

    Anymore extraneous points which appear to have purpose of obfuscating the fact that Obama lost the debate – and that he lost it because his answers and statements lacked substance?

    I suspect the Radish will now do his own version of “galloping”. He’ll have no answer…

    No, I think he is actually a rotarian and an Amway salesman.
