Wiki defines the term "apologist" is colloquially applied in a general manner to include groups and individuals systematically promoting causes, justifying orthodoxies, or denying certain events, even of crimes. Apologists have been characterized as being deceptive, or "whitewashing" their cause, primarily through omission of negative facts (selective perception) and exaggeration of positive ones, techniques of classical rhetoric.

I was asked to look up this word today, and found it to be a sign of the times.
I'll throw in another interesting word to be fair & balanced:

Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. The term was coined around the time of an incident in Prague Castle in the year of 1618. The word comes from the Latin de (from; out of) and fenestra (window or opening).

Defenestrate the apologist agenda.

Throw the rhetoric out the window!

Diva ~ The numbers are all over the map-- I've heard those are just the places of residence-- they actually have rental/income properties as well.

Anyway it was a bumpersticker slogan that seemed
to fit into the current focus on the economy.
However many damned houses the McCain's own is enough to make them entirely out of touch with reality. How's that??

We have a humble ranch style (cookie cutter) design
house, we'd maxed out with 4 people and one bathroom. Not living high on the hog here either & still have years to pay.
