Obligatory because Ace mentioned me in the title. And because his post inspired SeeDubya to this exquisite flourish of libertarian-bashing:

I see a cause for these problems—or at least a correlation. She’s not just a libertarian, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but a Libertarian, active in Libertarian Party politics. What’s more, not only is she a free-dope, free-love, militant-atheist, and gay-rights Libertarian activist, she’s also a Randroid—a follower of Ayn Rand and her “objectivist” “Philosophy”. Which is sort of an ugly blending of Nietzsche’s idea of the ubermensch with militant libertarianism—yeah, no, it doesn’t make sense, that’s the point. But certain people, especially sixteen-year-old debate-team savants who need an excuse to feel superior, are drawn to its permissiveness and elitism.

Yeah, I’ve got a feeling SeeDub’s been over to “Hit & Run” once or twice in the past.

Hell of a way to start the week. All right, Randians: it’s conniption time in the comments. Go crazy!

Update: I’ve got to post these even though they are, in fact, quite boring. A three-part podcast interview with the lady herself from last year: part 1, part 2, and part 3.

They saved the best for last: JacqMack on dating doesn’t come until the finale.
