I mean, that's kinda awesome when you think about it.
Okay, it's not much of a "little knot"; just the one blogger, about whom I had completely forgotten since our little kerfuffle three frickin' years ago, and his one commenter. But that commenter has actually wasted neural processor cycles hating me! L'il ol' me! And I don't know him from Adam's housecat! That is cool!
Anyhow, what I really like is how the original poster, who is a peace-loving and progressive kind of dude, set out to demolish Ayn Rand's philosophy by proving that she wasn't hot. Because, really, if you wouldn't jump a woman's bones, how can you possibly respect anything she says, amirite?
"She's hot! Don't you think?I mean, by his standard, Sarah Palin is ten times the thinker that ol' Strident Ayn ever was (not to mention wayyyy smarter than Hillary Clinton) and Kate Beckinsale is like Hobbes, Locke, and Adam Smith all rolled up in one latex-suited ball.
Lank hair, crooked teeth and no lips whatsover.
With the accent she's the entire package."
The blogger is, of course, entitled to these thoughts, since I'm sure he's a regular Adonis who has to beat the flocks of nubile cheerleaders off with a nine iron every time he sets foot in public.
Remember, kids: It's not ______ when we do it!
(The big irony here is that one of the things I find most annoying about Rand's generally ham-handed fiction is the fact that the good guys are all Beautiful People and if anyone appears in the dialogue who is described as unattractive, well, you know they're going to turn out to be some moral cripple. Read that dude's post while rolling that thought around in your head...)
