Townhall.com::The magnifying trick of liberal paranoia::By Jonah Goldberg: "The waves of paranoia currently sweeping through America could be seen as the democratization of intellectual dementia. Criticisms of President Bush, Christians, the right wing, the Patriot Act, whatever: These are all fine. But presumably, such large claims against America should come with ample evidence to back them up. Instead, we get the opposite. The smaller the example, the greater its significance. And that trick is the intellectual class's gift to America."

It's time to round up these loons and re-educate them. Giant kindergarten camps where they can learn their colors and numbers. Milk and cookies at 2PM, naptime following. Only squishy foam blocks though. Don't want them hurting one another.

Jonah's a bit tired. Or perhaps I'm just tired of reading about the intellectual bankruptcy of the left.

How long did it take for Kepler to replace Copernicus?

No, it’s probably the latter. We should not, in a fair world, have to worry about such idiots. But who ever told you it was fair? Whether we like it or not, these clowns are quite dangerous and cannot be ignored.
