Of course this quiz didn’t try to decide my gender, so there was a good chance I would have proven to be a man. Yes, Troi is who I would have said I was most like, had I time to think about it – right down to the not getting along with my mother. :)

Let's not generalize

It’s not that pageant contestants are ignorant idiots; rather, it is idiotic, ignorant pageant contestants that are ignorant idiots.

How any such ignorant idiot without the slightest clue about anything could get so much media attention is, perhaps, a testament to Donald Trump.

My head is spinning

I remain flabbergasted at the ability of fellow lefties to declare Obama’s political strategies ‘losing’ even when they already have succeeded. The latest to make my head spin was Matt Rothschild.

Seriously, the detachment from reality is profound. To this day there are seemingly ordinary people (like Rothschild) who insist that Republicans voted unanimously against the stimulus bill, when in fact it was passed only by means of Republican votes.

This is not a separate issue from, for instance, PJ Carpenter’s at least one time inability to distinguish ‘explicit’ from ‘implicit’, thinking that the latter was the former – that Dick Cheney saying he backed torture was an explicit admission of criminal guilt, even though the guy was explicitly saying what he did was in his opinion legal. My head is spinning faster just thinking about it.
