Afternoon Fail!

Ad Hominem Pwnage

Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) debated budget policy with committee member Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-I) during yesterday’s Senate Budget Committee meeting. Most politicians have mastered the art of formal debate, but while Sen. Conrad seemingly stuck to formal arguments, Sen. Grassley proved he’s the master of informal fallacy…and possibly acquired his debate skills on the internets [sic]. We’ll let you decide to whom the “Fail” applies.

  1. I could barely get through that. *cringe* I think I fail for watching it.

  2. What did that guy yell?

    Even if he just missed the joke, I have to give the thumbs up to Conrad for not playing along.

    Grassley has got a little too much Michael Scott in his life, methinks.

  3. The FAIL! goes to the guy in the peach/orange tie, whose hair looks like part of a lobster.

  6. I was hoping this would be more like the House of Commons. It was more like House of Buggin.

  8. It’s a little known fact that Sen. Conrad’s wife is a CNA
    employed in the geriatric field.

    When she gave Sen. Grassley accolades for being “good”,
    it was in the line of duty.

    That particular day, Sen. Grassley ate all his soup, and made his bowel movement in the toilet, rather than in his depends.

    Sometimes, Sen Grassley likes to pretend that he is Hugh Hefner.

    What are you gonna do?

  10. DON’T fall for the “come over and check out my grotto” line, either.

  13. He failed because he should have said “That’s what your mother said.” Everyone knows that a mother insult trumps a wife insult every single time.

    I think I have that cross-stitched on a sampler somewhere…
