Gresham’s Law for Intellectual Discourse

You should be familiar with Gresham’s Law in which, in an inflationary setting, bad money drives out the good money. There is a similar phenomenon in the realm of intellectual discourse in which stupid arguments will drive out the good ones. Similarly, spending time talking about how much money Romney has or that he has the gall to receive a shoeshine from someone else leaves you with less time focusing on how much of a genuine douche bag he is. Spend your time wisely folks.
