The ink on the handshake agreement wasn't even dry yet, when the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist wadded it up into a ball and ate it. And no way am I waiting for it come come out the other end. What I mean is -- THE DEBATE'S OFF. Sorry, sports fans. For no sooner had Labridor agreed to a debate at Daily Kos with the illustrious Atren--
I'll debate Mike or anyone about PRT, but it has to be a real debate in real time webcast or live.
Maybe your ATRA buddies can arrange it.
Speaking of ATRA, didn't Jeral Poskey resign as Chair of ATRA?

--and we seemed to have a dealio:
OK then! Assuming you're talking to me (Mike?), then alright, I see we have an agreement! Live is fine with me, so let's agree on a time and a forum where I can maintain my anonymity. I would be more than willing to do a webcast that does not involve video. A chat format would also do.
I am usually free nights and weekends, so name a time and I will let you know if I can do it.
Let's do it!

-- than Humidor was already making his un-move:
Transeth, ATE, Chris, Mike or whatever... I just said I won't debate anonymous people. I remember when you said you were a scientist.
by K*n A***** on Sat May 02, 2009 at 10:46:43 PM PDT
Yeah, I did my best to try and salvage it:
No, you just agreed to debate Mike. As in "I'll debate Mike". He's not anonymous, he's Mike. Or Chris. Come on, K*n! Debate! Bring joy to the faces of children the world over!

But no. The weaseling-out could not be stopped:
Thanks for dropping by.

Another copout :-) So you will debate anyone except those who accept your challenge to debate. Right? How convenient! :-) The basic problem here is that your idea of "debate" is to dig up as much irrelevant dirt on your opponent so you can turn the discussion into a circus and thereby hide the fact that your position is completely indefensible.
Whatever the case may be, the fact remains: you once again challenged debate, then copped out when I called your bluff. Some things never change.

Thank [sic] for dropping by.

Once again, we leave K*n A***** speechless :-D Nicely done, Mr Grant! Once again, we've pushed him into a corner and closed off all avenues for retreat, and just like that, the most prolific blogging head in the entire state of Minnesota is at a loss for words.
Facts are powerful weapons, indeed.
BTW, K*n, the debate offer remains. Whenever you get the guts to accept, let me know.

Well, at least we can all still have a laugh (or three):
*AIRHORN* Ladies, gentlemen and propadandists: we have our "whatever"! Do you think he does the eye-roll plus neck-roll when he types it?
