Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Not as Nuts as We Look

According to Jane's Law (earlier discussed here):

Jane's Law: The devotees of the party in power are smug and arrogant. The devotees of the party out of power are insane.
I was worried that my fellow wingnuts would go completely insane after the 2008 election but it looks like they missed an insanity:
Obviously, with anything having to do with zombies, there's only one thing for this blog, namely a certain undead German dictator with an insatiable thirst for human brains, who leaves idiotic analogies in his wake. Unfortunately, with the 2008 election being behind us, there was a dearth of suitable material for a new Hitler Zombie opus right now. (Where are all the political hacks comparing people to Hitler willy nilly? They were always so reliable before!)
(The context is explained here.)

It looks like we're nuts but not nuts enough to compare Obama to Hitler … yet.

On the other hand…

While reading a recent newspaper article about an Influential Leftist (who I will not identify other than to say it's not the President) I nearly caught myself thinking “[Influential Leftist] might be doing X but is doing so the way the Nazis did.” A moment later I realized it was an idiotic analogy (I was reacting to an episode of perfectly-normal hypocrisy). I then had the odd feeling that I had just beaten back an attack by a brain-eating zombie.
