He’s late to the party, but that’s OK

Jason pitches into that twit, Peter Hitchens—you may recall that I dealt with the same column a while back, but that level of stupid does support double-teaming to counter it, I think.

    You must have posted that on the one day I forgot to stop by here. Sorry about that. I’ve updated my post to include a link to yours.

    How do these people manage to get jobs that pay better than mine? I’m going to have to convert.

    Maybe that is religion’s secret: reward incompetence. That’ll get you a lot more support than demanding merit.

    The scary part is, you don’t need to really do anything.

    They’ve even made a damn board game. I’m going to have to ask my biochem major board game fanatic step-brother what he thinks about this piece of crap.

    Don’t apologize! Peter Hitchens isn’t my whipping boy, and there’s plenty of stupid to go around.

    Stupid, or crazy like a fox? These fools are performing a service: they are preaching to the choir and serving up false hope to those delusional enough to accept it. And, people give them money to do it.

    I saw Peter Hitchens recently on a British tv program hosted by David Starkey (who’s one of us). The format is that Starkey & three guests dicuss a couple of topical issues – 10 minutes or so each topic.

    They talked about societal drugs problems. Hitchens was a fool. He seems to be a slave to ideology.
