More Bell post-game analysis

Chris Mooney has his summary post up, in which he predictably and incorrectly declares victory for the forces of empty rhetoric, and Greg Laden correctly declares victory for the puppies and small children, which, of course, was our side.

No word from Matt Nisbet yet. He’s probably having a late breakfast of roast puppy, served by his army of child-slaves. (←framing.)

    This deserves to become a new meta-rhetorical device! Just attach “?framing” to instances of over-the-top mudslinging. For example,

    Those schmucks who run ScienceBlogs.com still haven’t instituted decent math markup support. Clearly, they’re getting paid off by the Wall Street Journal‘s op-ed writers, who want to keep America functionally innumerate so that they can continue to drive stretch-Hummer limousines to drug-fueled orgies where they snort lines of crack from the hipbones of nubile Young Republicans. (?framing.)

    Blake, “meta-rhetorical” would be rhetorics on rhetorics, wouldn’t it? Like framing framers by LOLFramers.
