No. Lois will just change the subject again until she is beaten down. Then she will repeat the process. How she went from topic of Columbine to 9/11, I have no idea. I guess it was the only way she could say, "look, Bush!!"

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
