Lies, Enumerated

Jay does the heavy lifting so you (and I) don't have to.

Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be

Remember when An American Carol skyrocketed to #161 on the 2008 box office charts with its conservative tale of Life in America? Remember how ideology made the script swoop and soar like an untrammeled great bird in the hands of Kelsey Grammer and Zach Levy? It looks as if we have another hit of that magnitude. Pretty much everyone shrugged.
Dagny and Hank ride blissfully in Taggart’s new high-speed train, and then Hank suggests they take a trip to Wisconsin, where the state’s policies caused the suppression of an engine that runs on the ozone in the air, or something (the film’s detailed explanation won’t clear this up). They decide to drive there. That’s when you’ll enjoy the beautiful landscape photography of the deserts of Wisconsin.

RPW Fail

You should further note that the e-mails that we have reviewed contain absolutely no evidence of political motivation, contact from individuals outside normal academic channels or inappropriate conduct on the part of Professor Cronon. The university finds his conduct, as evidenced in the e-mails, beyond reproach in every respect. He has used his university e-mail account appropriately and legitimately. He has not used his university e-mail account for any inappropriate political conduct. In fact, none of the e-mails contained any reference whatsoever to any of the specific political figures that you identified (except Governor Scott Walker), nor do they in any way reference the proposed recall efforts.
What's the hub-bub, Bub?
