  1. Sadly, Mungowitz descends to demuaoggery and FAILS.Munger wails, “Waaaaahhhhhhh their reporters aren’t being fair and thorough,”* and cites … an opinion blog. Were I to demagogue like Mungowitz, I could say, “Mungowitz thinks that the only fair opinion is one that agrees with his! Booooo hoooooo.”Then Mungowitz, who LOVES to call people bedwetters, whines “How come it’s cheating if the Repubs do it?”Here’s the first sentence of the article, “Pennsylvania Republicans are working on a plan that’s as mischievous as it is completely legitimate: apportioning its electoral votes by congressional district instead of the current winner-take-all system.” [my bold]This blog has some very useful ideas and can be quite illuminating. I don’t see the point of demuaoggery and insults. To the extent that Mungowitz believes he knows how to make the world a better place and is trying to make that happens, the lies, distortions, and ad homineming undermine those goals.* Not an actual quotation. Satire.
