In which I completely lose every ounce of respect I once had for Penn Gillette:
Bullshit has been going downhill ever since Penn and Teller decided to spend more time bitching about non-libertarian politics than going after anti-rationalist thought, and Penn's been spending way more time with Glenn Beck than is healthy, but this is pretty much the last straw. To sit and listen to this horseshit giggling is to officially become part of the problem.
Dave Neiwert does the intellectual heavy lifting here. (And if you don't read him, you should, because he's one of the best political thinkers working right now.)
