I just read this comment on a blog talking about how Obama is smearing McCain on his stance towards immigration. The article is irrelevant, but the comment annoys me:

great job kevin your article is (w)right on the money. when liberals post angry comments you know someone is writing the truth.
No. All you know from “liberals posting angry comments” is that people (whom you think are liberals) are posting angry comments.
It doesn’t mean the article is true, it just means he made people angry, either because they disagree with his opinion or because he was lying. It doesn’t really matter which, I just find myself annoyed when a conclusion doesn’t follow from the evidence or statement.
I’m sure there’s some Latin term for that, but I don’t feel like looking it up. I think I’ll just call it “ignorant.”
