  •  Sure, Absolutely True (none)
    The theory is plausible.  The satire contains some resemblance to what we might regard as a possible truth.  But in this diary the satire isn't presented as a frutiful direction for speculation, it's presented as a evidence.  As such, it's either really damn stupid, or a profound breech in intellectual honesty.

    The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

    •  Yeah, as I said a little bit downthread (none)
      in a kindof out-of-the-way location, Soj should definitely have labelled all of this as interesting speculation.  A reread of his post shows that he definitely did not.  That sucks.  And it is bad for dKos standards, such as they are.

      As I said down below, you're right here.

      I'd go for the "really damn stupid" option, but I have no real familiarity with Soj's posting history, and you said upthread that you do.  Maybe it was just willfully leaving out the fact that it's satire so that the claim and the diary become more powerful.

      Anyway, good on ya for catching it.  I'm reading downthread now to see what everyone else is saying.
