General: I will vote on anything you can warrant out, but the more out there your claims are the harder it will be to win.(i.e. it will be easier for you to win on a bad politics DA than dead good) I don't know anything about the topic. My hearing isn't the best sometimes so please be clear and signpost.
K's/K affs: I am familiar with a good deal of k's but the postmodern stuff still confuses me sometimes. I am more sympathetic to policy arguments and understand them better but will still vote on a k if it is explained well. I would prefer if you read a plan, but if your aff does not I will do my best to evaluate it objectively. Win framework
DA/CP: I love clever DA+CP strategies, but do not appreciate borderline abusive process cps. Obscure politics scenarios are A+. Make sure to win the link AND impact calc in the 2ar/2nr.
Theory: tech>truth more than other parts of the flow but if they answer it you'll need to point to abuse. 2 or less condo is probably necessary, 3+ is up for debate. Lean aff on process, consult, constitutional fiat, 50 state. Condo is usually a good reason for perfcon, but don't get too outrageous
T: tech>truth. Normally I default to reasonability for core affs but I don't know what the topic looks like this years so line by line will be very important. Topic education and fairness are very persuasive to me.
