Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) on Friday posted a video of her Arizona Senate race opponent, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D), referring to Arizona as the "meth lab of democracy" during a Netroots Nation address in 2011.

"You can see in this very quote that the states are laboratories of democracy," Sinema says in the edited video, gesturing to a slideshow that is offscreen.

"And my state, Arizona, is clearly the meth lab of democracy."

Regarding Kanye West — and keeping in mind that this is a forum for critical thinking (or analyzing the lack thereof) — it's telling that the hair-on-fire leftist media* chooses to engage in ad hominems instead of addressing the actual issues.

And by "telling", I mean despicable.

In a video shared by CBS Evening News, West explains in the Oval Office how a doctor had informed him that his initial bipolar diagnosis had not been accurate.

"I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was connected with a neuropsychologist that works with the athletes in the NBA and the NFL, and he looked at my brain," West says.

“He said that I actually wasn’t bipolar, I had sleep deprivation, which could cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now where I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name,” West says, while sitting at the Resolute Desk opposite Donald Trump.

“I wouldn’t be able to remember his name from a misdiagnosis.”

Earlier this year, West opened up about his mental health while promoting his latest album Ye.

In an interview with American radio host Big Boy, he spoke about how he’d been diagnosed with a “mental health condition” at 39 years old.

“Everybody got something,” he said. “But, it’s like I said on the album, it’s not a disability but a superpower.”
Me? I dunno. He said it. AFAIK, though, bipolar disorder is not diagnosed via "looked at my brain," and sleep deprivation is a significant part of bipolar disorder.

Not his fault if he is ill...but if he is ill and does have a genuine diagnosis of either bipolar disorder or sleep deprivation, it is his responsibility.

Aside from that, to satisfy the obligatory "tu quoque" fallacy, I'll see your Eminem and raise you Ted Nugent.

He told a laudatory anecdote about Abe Lincoln that starts out by saying Lee was a great general.

Not that Lee was a good person, or that his cause was just of course.

And no less than Ulysses Grant said the same.

But it proves he's a White Supremacist!

I'm quite hesitant to derail the shitpost thread with an actual conversation, but I would like to be clear that I was not intending to debate the issue of whether Kanye is "mentally ill". My focus was more on the notion that an argumentum ad hominem fallacy is still a fallacy even if the criticism has some evidentiary basis.

:lmao:

It is however perfectly OK by me to refer to Lee as a "great general".

It is a comment on his generalship not his cause. And being on the losing side does not prove me wrong.

He merely faced a greater general.

My opinion is based on Grant's war memoirs which I have read in full. What makes Grant's war memoirs unique in that genre is that all the opposing commanders were men he knew personally.
