Back in 2004, Glenn Reynolds declared that the election here in Australia was in no small part a referendum on the Iraq war. This was wrong, as anyone who was here at the time could tell you. So, I posted a roundup of comments from news stories, pundits and bloggers, left and right, pro- and anti-war. Everyone agreed that the war was only a minor issue. Reynolds’ sole support for his position, Tim Blair, showed up in comments to deny that he was saying that the war was a major issue.
Since not one person in Australia now supported his position Reynolds concluded that he was right and that I was “unreliable”.
Confirmation Bias isn’t really adequate to describe the way Reynolds thinks. I’m calling it Glenn Reynolds Syndrome.
