The Least Convincing Argument

Since it’s in the neighborhood, we’re inundated with information about the Wisconsin showdown between the union and the government. There are lots of issues and many of them are getting an airing, often in the familiar “two guest interview”. You’ve seen these: a moderator invites a conservative and a liberal to give opposing views. So, given the opportunity to make a case, why do these representatives of different governing philosophies make the least convincing argument possible?

What’s the least convincing argument? That when the conservative (liberal) tells us what the liberals (conservatives) think. What, are they mind readers? Why would anyone give such pronouncements any credibility at all? How stupid do they think we are?
