Sullum vs. O’Reilly

O’Reilly is a prohibitionist. That is the only conclusion I can draw from his insistence in aggregating alcoholics into the drug addict numbers when arguing against decriminalization.

Here’s a newsflash for you, Billy. We tried alcohol prohibition. It didn’t work, so we gave up. You look like an idiot for even suggesting it. The War on Blacks Coolies Jazz Musicians Hippies Poor People Drugs has failed. It is time to give up.

    He lost me when he invoked the children. He lost me again when he used the word irresponsible. He lost me a third time when he referred to his opponent as a pinhead. Then he lost me some more when he tried to drown out his opponent with sheer volume.
