This is a great idea... 

Weblog Entry - 12/10/2003: "blah3.com'" (via Eschaton)
So in the interest of keeping the political discussions honest in the coming year, I'm proposing a variant of Godwin's Law that I'm calling 'Stranger's Law.' And it goes a little something like this:

As a discussion of US politics grows longer, the probability of a liberal or progressive being called a 'Bush-Hater' approaches one. Once this occurs, that thread is over, and whoever called someone a Bush Hater has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress.
I agree wholeheartedly. Where do I vote? Where do I sign?
