When someone makes an argument that sounds compelling, but is actually just based in wordplay and not logic.

Examples of Rhetoriculous statements:
"If you can take a dick you can take a joke" (excuse for homophobic jokes)
"If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything" (there's no correlation between having passion for something and being immune to trickery. If anything, the opposite.)
John: "You preach Tolerance, yet you're Intolerant of Intolerance!"

Xander: "That's not how political sensitivity / tolerance works, and you know it. You're being rhetoriculous, come back with an actual argument."
