What Is the Point?

This is my first blog post in over a week, which raises hope of an eventual full remission of the compulsive blogging disorder (CBD).

What I find most helpful in suppressing the blogging impulse is recognition that there really is no point in it: wait a day or two and someone is sure to make the case better than I can.

This was well demonstrated yesterday by Alex Kurtagic’s demolition of a university-sponsored pseudo-scientific study proving that all right-wingers are dumb racists.

The study reminds one of those reports that students using Macs are dumber than those with IBM PC, or that folks who use Internet Explorer are dumber than those using Firefox.

But perhaps the study is a hoax to prove that liberal academics will believe anything. If so, we look forward to the follow up.
