Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Let's see who is framing the debate this week, shall we?

Argument Clinic--Monty Python, 1972

Forty-five years later and this is pretty much the Sunday news shows. They have just as much substance and utility as this pointless argument for argument's sake. Would for our mainstream media to just point out the dishonesty of the GOP's arguments against ACA. To call out the hypocrisy. To hold these talking heads accountable for their lies. To agree that the starting out point of any conversation is ACTUAL facts. Anything less is just argument for argument's sake.
