Con

Republicans are overweight. Not only that, they are primarily obese, white, middle-aged, midwestern, racist, homophobic, sexist, bible-thumping, ignorant pigs.

I look forward to an opponent to prove this fact.

Pro

I can quote about 3-4 more...but intelligence goes down with weight, and most MAINSTREAM republicans are, to be blunt, low on the ol' IQ.

the more southern (and hence more republican based on voting history) the average weight increases

Con

While I am a liberal, and inclined to believe thaqt conservatives are lacking in many departments, I nevertheless took the con position in this debate. Alas, it is up to my opponent to prove that Conservatives are all of the above. While some of them very well may be (and in fact some of them harbor at least a few of the described traits) I eagerly await my opponent's asrgument that proves that all conservatives are primarily obese, white, middle-aged, midwestern, racist, homophobic, sexist, bible-thumping, ignorant pigs. My opponent has yet to do so.

They aren't. But based on the data it is MUCH MORE LIKELY for a mainstream republican to be over weight than not. Neither of us can prove it as an absolute.

Hoosierpapi must like the ol' win record, eh?
He certainly doesn't like feeling clever, though. Because this debate is like the anti-clever.

Lame stupid liberal idiots. Everyone knows conservatives tend to be strong in mind and body! Healthy consciences make healthy people. All liberals are fat egotistical slobs who are unable to use any kind of logic. Liberals are all weak in mind and spirit and are filthy people who never shower. They also have small sexual organs.

What a lame freaking debate.

Took both of you a grand total of 30 seconds I'm sure.

LAME.

pro, most judges wont go to a source you cite to look for evidence. qoute it yourself, provide analosis, cite all the evidence you can.
con, whilst you may have added "white, middle-aged, midwestern, racist, homophobic, sexist, bible-thumping, ignorant pigs" the topic only refers to weight. if its not in the topic, then you cant argue your opponent looses because he didnt cover it. the topic also doesnt say all, so it is assumed to refer to most cases.
pro, did not use last round well. the last round is ment to explain to the judges exactly why you win, you didnt do that once.
con, dont comment post an argument after the debate is over. you only have that many rounds to argue, after those are up, you cant make any more.
pro being teh only one to cite evidence, although he neither qouted it or used it in his case. and also because even though con was more coherent, he never made an acutal case (besides to say pro hadnt proved anything). i vote pro.

My opponent said "they are not" thereby proving my point, and conceding the debate.

He also said "Neither of us can prove it as an absolute.:

I can easily prove this pooitn wrong. I have many conservative friends, and some of them are not only not overweight, they are in excellent shape.

I would also point to George W. Bush, who by all accounts, is one of our most fit presidents. Hardly overweight.

I do believe I can state in the absolute that Republicans are NOT all overweight.
