    Ayn Rand said so.

      I have read both The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. But both over 30 years ago. I even went through a brief period when I was impressed with Rand as a philosopher. As an author, however, she is without a doubt one of the worst in history that has sold more than a few hundred books.

      So I've long forgotten some of the "plot" points of both books. Do I now have to go through the torture of re-reading them or can I just accept that whatever the tea baggers think about Rand is wrong and continue to laugh at the "morans"?

      Rand denied that Roark raped Dominique or that if he did she asked for it.  Lovely woman Rand.
