How is this for politics. If you commit a blunder and a tragedy ensues and your opponent calls you on it... what should you do?
1. Deflect - Trash your opponent for speaking out of turn? (making up that rule on the fly)
2. Distract - Have your media minions trash your opponent and downplay the tragic events.
3. Demagogue - Wag your finger at your opponent and say he doesn't know what he is talking about and to let you do your job. Especially when he is right and you have no clue.
ANSWER: All 3 of them
Deflect, Distract and Demogue
