The Way to Con Like Kellyanne

Ddong Today hasn’t made time for this character yet, but her LEGO effigy made it to the Trump administration figurehead caricature photoshoot a couple of weeks back. It took a little work with the limited LEGO on hand to find a white block for the main head. The imagery is all there, for whatever nonsensical sounding gospel spews from Conway’s mouth, she is just mouth on a stick whose main purpose is to disrupt and confound (part of the larger FEWP agenda). Her style (as analyzed below) is as magnificent as it is malevolent. She’s been on the inner circle of the 2016 ticket and now has a seat at that same table where she is directed to do what she does best, thwart all intelligence with her illogic.

Illogic is a common theme for Westerners in South Korea and the strategies to deal with an illogical mouthpiece like Kellyanne Conway are the same:

  • walk away if you can
  • do not engage if have to stay
  • take away the reasons for the illogical mouthpiece to keep talking by switching to a new topic where the purveyor of illogic will begin to spout logic (sports works well here, no one would ever twist the rules of baseball, for example), once common ground of logic is established through the new topic, feel out the illogical mouthpiece for weaknesses of their illogical philosophy, then:
  • if a weakness can be found, slowly and very gently walk the illogical mouthpiece back towards the original topic reinforcing the bounds of the agreed upon logic from the new topic (really, this almost never happens … you’ve got a 30/70 chance)
  • if no weaknesses can be found, get the fuck away from the nonsense before you kill
  • if you can’t find common logical ground with the illogical mouthpiece, get away (you’d wouldn’t hang around talking to acid, would you?)
