Of course there is. But our leading politicians all seem to have stepped out of your college dorm.


Bill Clinton is the guy who never lost a BS session argument. Ted Cruz is the only guy who never lost an argument to Bill Clinton, but who also set the dorm record for causing eyes to roll.


Barack Obama is the guy you could usually defeat in an argument but only the most intelligent of your friends realized you had beaten him.


George W. Bush is the guy who never participated in BS sessions. You thought he was out having a good time and sometimes he was. You considered him shallow and intellectually challenged until you discovered that while you were talking, he was often in his room reading the books you were discussing without having read.


John Kerry is the guy three years your senior to whom you looked up when you arrived at college, but within a few months realized was a windbag. Mitt Romney is the guy three years your senior whom you dismissed as a straight-arrow when you arrived and came to respect only after he had graduated.


Joe Biden is the guy everyone liked, but who lasted only one semester. You werent sure whether he was bounced for bad grades or plagiarism.


Marco Rubio is the guy two years your junior who was always trying to impress you with his earnestness and his ideas. Eventually, his earnestness made you wonder whether he was a phony and the opportunism of his arguments made you wonder some more.


Hillary Clinton is the student who crashed your circle on the heels of her popular boyfriend. She resented the circle because she thought its reluctance to admit was due her gender and/or her brains. In reality, it was due to her obnoxiousness.


Chris Christie is the guy you never stuck around to hear argue because he was too loud and blustery.


Harry Reid is the guy who, when his arguments failed (as they invariably did), attacked your parents and, if that didnt work, started throwing punches.


Paul Ryan is the guy who always wanted to talk about the Christian existentialists when everyone else wanted to discuss the Marxists or the post-structuralists.


Jerry Brown is the guy who, in a pinch, introduced Eastern philosophy or religion into the argument. It worked, too. Even Bill Clinton was thrown off of his stride.


Dick Cheney is the guy you never used your pet BS arguments on. If his fiancee Lynne didnt destroy them with analysis, he would crush them with a stare.
