Anyone that regularly gets attacked by right wing nut jobs needs to read this: The Gish Gallop. 

The Gish Gallop, named after creationist Duane Gish, is the debating technique of drowning the opponent in such a torrent of half-truths, lies, and straw-man arguments that the opponent cannot possibly answer every falsehood in real time

Anyone in the science, atheism, progressive, lgbt, women's rights, pro-union, environment, etc. communities likely has to deal with this conservative debate tactic on a daily basis. I never knew it had a name.

Regardless, that's why I'm so course with irrational right wing idiots so often. Even an irrefutable point by point debunking of their rants would prove incapable of piercing their cognitive dissonance. So I laugh at them. They deserve our mockery.
