[Anonymous] Blogger Exercises Old Ploy

If you can't win an argument, change it

A local [anonymous] blogger recently mischaracterized the content of a video produced by Oprah Winfrey's "Harpo Production, Inc." by claiming Hollywood stars pledged "support" to President Obama.

If that were the case, if Hollywood stars had merely pledged support to the President, that would be one thing but, that isn't what the Hollywood stars featured in the "Harpo" video, entitled "I Pledge!" did. They pledged to be "servants" to the President, not merely to support him. You can watch the video for yourself, I provided a link to it here.

> sup·port·er : one that supports or acts as a support

> sup·port (1) : to promote the interests or cause of (2) : to uphold or defend as valid or right : advocate (3) : to argue or vote for...

> ser·vant : one that performs duties about the person or home of a master or personal employer

> ser·vi·tude : a condition in which one lacks liberty especially to determine one's course of action or way of life

It's a good thing that particular [anonymous] blogger offers advice not to take his blog too seriously! I really don't think he has any reason to worry about that.

He's not much worth engaging in discourse. His standard fare is insult and delusion, all in the name of humor. No reason to act like he's trying to have a discussion.
