Sheldon Whitehouse’s Slander


Regarding the recent comments by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.): Resorting to polemical and outrageous claims of racism is the last refuge (or sometimes the first) of liberals who can’t win substantively on issues. They remind me of a law professor who once told me that if you have the law on your side, argue the law. If you don’t have the law but you have the facts, ignore the law and argue the facts. If neither the law nor the facts are on your side, then attack your opponent to distract the jury from the fact that your client is guilty as hell.
