As am I. He doesn't like the Birthers but that's because most of them are basically retarded.
I haven't liked The National Review since Mr Buckley left and his son decided he was a Leftinistra dip dunk and the rest of the crowd over yonder are nothing but a buch of circle-jerkers pretending to be The Conservatives when they are nothing of the sort. Go read this article at Red State (below the fold) but I will add that some of the writers at Red State are in the same boat as Jim Manzi, the troll turtle turd that wrote all about Mark Levin's Epistemic Nonsense. Jim Manzi. A "conservative" much like the other "conservative" troll Andrew Sullivan.
I have read Liberty and Tyranny and there is no "Epistemic Nonsense" in that book. I have placed that book in my Amazon Store located in the right hand side bar on this blog that two people have clicked on. No big deal but his book is in there.
[...] Look - reasonable people can disagree about dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. And I would, prior to yesterday, have said I was glad a guy like Manzi was out there trying to sift through some of the nonsense out there on global warming to put it all in context, even if I thought him a little squishy for my taste. But, I am sorry there Jim, no matter how much research you’ve done or no matter the extent to which I might even agree with you at times, while you are sitting in your little circle with a bunch of other self-indulgent asses that no one else in the world gives a rip about putting out posts like yesterday’s nonsense, Mark is out on the front lines inspiring a generation of Americans to fight back against statism. [...]
And we are fighting back and we are winning. The Obamedia says that we aren't and that's why MSLSD is in a Civil War over there. Fancy that. The Tea Parties are winning the fight but there are the marxist LaRouche clowns that are destroying some of the Tea Party groups but we are winning. Oh, our trolls don't think so but that's becasue they are dumber than a box of turtle turds so we can just count them out. Who wants to listen to an Obamabot?
So, "hogan" at Red State? Your article is sound and so is your logic. Stand tall and never, never, never give up. Epistemic Nonsense - Count Me on Team Levin. Rock on, Brother. Rock on.
"Epistemic closure"? That right there is the Republican Party, Jim Manzi. Deal with it or shut up. Manzi, Frum, Douthat, Brooks, Sullivan and many others think they are The Conservatives but all they are is this - political hacks and being a political hack is what needs to be trounced into the Abyss of Obscurity.
