Shoehorning your opponents into prejudged positions so that you can respond with default stock answers is giving you tunnel vision in a way that is preventing you from seeing the actual points that are being made.

Milos' and Ann's positions aren't a mystery. Milos is just an internet troll that says abrasive things to get a rise out of people. He has even admitted as much. Ann's message has been out in books and other media for years now.

I don't see why any university has an interest in hosting speakers who tell outright lies for the purpose of either encouraging anger or furthering a political movement. Having standards isn't a bad thing.

Not only can screw a light bulb but it would be a HUGE light; it would show he can screw a light better than any President since Abraham.

I heard that Trump has screwed in more light bulbs in his first 100 than any other President, BIGLY!! They are also the most AMAZING light bulbs of any administration, and more people watch Trump screw in light bulbs, both in person and on TV, than any president before him. If it weren't for the filibuster, Trump would have screwed in enough light bulbs to bring the coal industry back!! SAD!
