Laws of American Civil Discourse


Complete with corollaries:
1) Godwin's Law- As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.
Corollary- Whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically "lost" whatever debate was in progress.

2) Obama's Law- Whenever anyone criticizes President Obama, he/she is a racist.
Corollary- Besides, it's Bush's fault!
