Jeff Poor at DC Caller illustrates my point in this post. Behold the vaporings of crackpot “deep thinker” Noam Chomsky:
”There’s [sic] other factors like the anger, and the fear and hostility in the country about everything carries over to this [this man’s claim to fame is his expertise in linguistics, right? - P.],” Chomsky said. “So if you look at polls, everyone hates Congress. They hate the Democrats. They hate the Republicans even more. They hate big business. They hate banks and they distrust scientists. So why should we believe what these pointy-head elitist are telling? We don’t trust anything else. We don’t trust them.”Actually, I interpret the conservatives' election victories of November to be more like the death knell for Deluxe-Class accommodations on the national gravy train for tenured Gaia fetishists, speech commissars, talking airheads, trans fat policemen, Bolshevik tycoons, congressional lemmings, Hollywood philosophes and other such ideological dingleberies that nestle in the shorts of the body politic. And yes, I say that like it’s a good thing.
He explained those feelings led to November’s election results, and would have serious repercussions for civilization.
“All of this combines the latest election a couple of days ago,” he continued. “You could almost interpret it [as] a kind of a death knell for the species.”
It tolls for thee, you cloth-headed poseur.
