I intensely dislike it when people try to confuse or befuddle me on purpose because they want to deceive me or trick me. It’s like, I’m not as stupid as you think I am, buddy. I can see what you’re trying to do. I tend to only find people like that when discussing politics, sad to say, as that’s a topic ripe for people wanting to confuse, befuddle, and deceive others. I especially hate it when you’re talking to someone, particularly someone on the opposite side of the fence from you, and they bring up unrelated topics or quotes to try and turn the discussion around to something else.
No, sweetums, it doesn’t work like that. Of course, as the old saying goes, if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.
