    “When my side wins, it is a triumph of reason; when the other side wins, our reason is outnumbered by their mere exercises of power.”

    My favorite counterexample to this snark is creationism. When the creationists win, it’s an exercise of power. When they don’t win, it’s an exercise of reason. And that’s completely true. It’s not just because everyone says that reason has won when their own side has won–rather, there actually is a difference between the two sides, and to say that one is motivated by reason and one is not is merely to speak the truth.

    Not every pair of sides is equal.

    (And if you are a creationist, I’m not interested in you derailing this conversation.)
