Practice Safe Rhetoric

I was talking with a friend the other day. He is generally supportive of Obama and his plans for health care. But he didn't understand why Obama decided to call them "Death Panels".

Yes, he actually thought it was Obama who came up with that terminology.

Be warned folks, when you use the other side's rhetoric you are acting as a carrier. This is true even if you are doing so only in order to refute it.

(And yes, I corrected him on his misunderstanding.)
