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.
