On Monday I was riding home from the airport with Metrocars (recommended, by the way) and because neither the driver now I could remember the frequency for the NPR station, I was enjoying the rare and exotic pleasure of listening to Rush Limbaugh.
A caller asked Rush if he did not think that Obama had orchestrated the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as a pretext for nationalizing the oil industry.
To his credit, this was too much even for Rush - though one wonders how Glen Beck would have handled it - and he gave the caller a long and reasonable enough talking to about why this was actually, as it is, a very bad thing for Obama in several senses.
Still, the woman seemed completely sincere. Wow. She should get out more or at least apply Smith's law: "never assume malevolence when incompetence will do".
Who was my favorite student this term?
