Forever Fourteen

Rand Paul describes the plot of Ayn Rand’s novel Anthem. If you’ve never heard of it, it sounds exactly like an Ayn Rand novel.

I figure that humanity would be better served burning Ayn Rand books for heat.

“Energy,” in this case being defined as fossil fuels. Pity that alternate sources of energy are simply not available as part of the discussion. Pity that the collective won’t allow that sort of individual thinking.

After seeing this performance, I would definitely vote for Rand Paul for President of the Hair Club for Men.

Of course, we couldn’t be basing our social policies on Anna Karenina or Satyricon. Of course we have to base our social policies on tripe no one can read past the age of 17. And he’s proud of himself. He reckons he’s a thinker. In fact he’s a wanker. Or thanker.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: “Wanker” is a highly useful expression that we should totally steal.

I am reminded by the advert appearing next to this post that Atlas Shrugged the Movie will be in theaters this Friday. Numbers of Teabaggers who have yet to read the book are in for a treat.

Like the word “liberal” I wish people would stop using wanker in a derogatory manner. My right hand always takes offense.

@DElurker: Hörku í typpið mitt mun ekki fara í burtu nema ég högg það!

@nojo: My people say “wanker er eins og wanker virkar”.
