It's been a while since we played the "grand game," where KPC readers are cordially invited to find the most asinine component of a post on another blog, and quote it for fun and for cash. Well, for fun.
Here's the post, by old friend Nick Gillespie, ex-editor of Reason mag, and now head of Reason-TV.
Two initial things:
1. You canNOT list Nick's suggestion that I run for Prez as the most asinine part of the post. Self-consciously absurd passages are called "irony," and are not eligible for GG entries. Only absurdities that are intended seriously make it past our strict panel of judges. Nick is clearly having a little fun. But the commenters are not big on fun. They are your data; find the maximum.
2. In this same vein, Tannim's comment (November 21, 2008, 12:28pm) does NOT qualify for the GG. It is funny, but intentionally so:
Talk to your proctologist about your lobotomy; it's overdue.
Now, THAT is intellectual discourse.
Go to it....
