Pantload confesses, "I haven't been following the Rand Paul debate too closely." Still, "I agree entirely with Rich's post."
Of course he does.
The Load's ignorance, often fused with a willingness to pontificate, ain't limited to whacked-out libertarians. A perusal of his back pages reveals a shocking range of stupidity. The list not as long as you'd think, but lengthy enough to place below the fold...
Censorship: "Now I haven't been following the Giuliani versus Brooklyn Museum battle
very closely, and just when I was starting to pay attention, it seems to
have been settled."
Teevee: "I haven't been following [American Idol] much for all sorts of reasons."
New Jersey politics: "To
be honest, I haven't followed the New
Jersey folderol too closely."
Snuff films: "I haven't followed much of the controversy or the hype about Mel
Gibson's new film on the Passion."
Presidential primary: "I haven’t followed the Iowa straw poll closely..."
Polls: "I haven't followed all of the details of the "missing bounce" discussion
GOP sex scandals: "Okay, I haven't followed the Ryan thing closely. But here are few thoughts...."
The Scott Peterson case: "I haven't followed
the case since its second or third week. ... I assume the verdict is correct."
The U.S. Attorney scandal: "But to be brutally honest, I haven't followed it closely enough to make
up my own mind on the merits. I really suspect that this is much ado about not much. But I could be wrong."
The Oil-for-Food scandal: "Now, while I haven't followed it that closely, I do think the FT's point about the Security
Council deserving more blame is a sound one."
Israeli politics: "I haven't followed the details of the Sharon money
scandal, but it seems to me..."
Nuclear negotiations: "I haven't followed the Iran-EU nuclear negotiations close enough, but
I'm still skeptical."
