  •  Nerds come in two varities (9+ / 0-)

    One, was someone who was a smart, social outcast in high school and then grew up, got some power, and became a liberal, because they don't want other people to get pushed around. The other variety was a smart, social outcast in high school, they got mad about it, and felt like the best way to deal with that ostracism was to become a bully. So, they became either a libertarian, a Paulbot/Randroid, or a conservative.

      Admit to themselves they were subversive by the mere fact of breathing. This is the gay way, and verily, as it is written +1 can haz the force. Just saying.

       The Randoid/NeoCon bit you observed is what fascinates me these days too. I tried to hang in and be peaceable with folks like that when I was younger to learn how to get along. (didn't work) Now, here's Alex Jones starting the Divisive scheme against his own, other nerd allies. I really wonder if they'll melt down a la conservatard-meatheads, but I don't know.

       I'm definitely stocking up on popcorn though. I mean what real true AnarchoTechnoNerdy-attention grabber is really going to fall in like with the Southern Narrative made silly by ^10k these last 40 years? It's really not the same stupid, the culture wars advantaged them all for so long I think they forgot.
