StrawMann Graphic

By MamaLiberty


Found this at Watts Up With That this morning.  Just love the image.

Then, from Dictionary.com:

straw man

1. a mass of straw formed to resemble a man, as for a doll or scarecrow.
2. a person whose importance or function is only nominal, as to cover another’s activities; front.
3. a fabricated or conveniently weak or innocuous person, object, matter, etc., used as a seeming adversary or argument

And then there are outright lies. Not seeing a whole lot of difference myself.

What are some of the examples of “strawman” arguments you see in the news today? Or are they just plain lies? Some of each? What do you think?

And, maybe more important, what can “we” do about it?
