  •  Trekkies vs Rand freaks (6+ / 0-)

    Having observed the young neo-con twerp in his native environment (translation:  I was a student at Dartmouth in the 80's), I'm convinced that neo-Cons are basically Trekkies who read Rand instead of watching The Original Series.  There's not a hell of a lot of difference otherwise.  Really, the difference between wanking to fantasies of Dagny Taggart versus wanking to fantasies of Uhura is, well, pretty much non-existence.

    Obligatory snark aside, what I find amusing is that all wingnuts prating about "going Galt" more resemble those Aristocracy of Pull and related goons than the heroes of Rand's book.

    When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all.
