Something you won’t see at SPEP… (?)

I caught this again as I was trying to close open tabs in Firefox (I must set records for how long some of them remain open: I am always so hopeful in my reading… and thus open articles in tabs I take a long time to get back to). Here, two young conservatives are on a panel, and the speaker ends up performing a rebuttal (on a panel simply celebrating a book launch, no less) by argument ad feminam, saying that the woman to his left has views that are particularly cruel and he knows it since he dated her. The best part is that he’s right: her views are cruel and inhumane, but that seems incidental… it just makes for the most awkward chairing experience of any panel I’ve seen…(the worst starts a couple of minutes in…)
