Bullshit is asymmetric warfare!

Bullshit is asymmetric warfare!  It's obviously true, but I never put the two thoughts together before.  It's no wonder there's so much bullshit in politics, then: it's a very efficient way to wage political warfare.  Just as it costs Hamas far less to attack Israel than it costs Israel to defend itself, a politician employing bullshit is going to spend far less than his or her opponent who is not.

This has led directly to our current situation, where virtually all of our politicians lead with the bullshit – in which case it's not asymmetric anymore...
