Kamm's Gimlet

Rhetorical Ploy

Argument-winning technique whereby a writer pens tedious diatribes of such immense length and intellectual flatulence that political opponents lose the will to continue debating.

So called because, like its chief practitioner, a gimlet is a small boring tool.

Not to be confused with Cohen's Neon Fallacy, named after the well-known six-foot tube.

kamm is a nasty, fat, short, little cunt of an over privileged fuckwit. All normal people wish all the bad in the world on him.

Mr Kamm probably posts on the Guardian website as MoveAnyMountain.

He is scared the communists are going to make him share his loot.
