TINA - the argument from intellectual bankrupcy

Of late, one of the more dishonest arguments for the proposed Anglican Covenant has been that there is no alternative

TINA, as the argument is sometimes called, is the argument of last resort for the intellectually (and often morally) bankrupt.

Speaking of intellectual and moral bankrupcy, Canadian Liberal leader Count Michael Ignatieff has been telling Canadians that they must either vote for one corrupt right wing party or for a different corrupt right wing party. (The Conservatives are heavier on the right wing part; the Liberals on the corrupt part.)

Perhaps there is something about bushy eyebrows that moves one to make such vacuous arguments.

In the meantime, there's at least one Canadian politician arguing that there perhaps is an alternative to the current duopoly of corrupt right wingers.
