The Beck/Olbermann Principle is pretty simple – By invoking the name(s) of any of the following political figures, you automatically lose your argument:
Mr. Beck, Keith Olbermann, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Rush Limbaugh, James Carville, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, anyone named Bush, anyone named Clinton, Newt Gingrich, former Vice President Dick Cheney, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Al Franken, Vice President Joe Biden, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker John Boehner, former Illinois Gov. and current inmate George Ryan, former Illinois Gov. and future inmate Rod Blagojevich, any current or former Illinois Governor, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, any former cast member of Predator turned Governor…or basically, any politician ever.
