Rightbloggers on healthy conservative debate: Shut up! (Whoops, we mean: epistemic closure!)

%{[ data-embed-type=”image” data-embed-id=”57150c4389121ca96b9608ba” data-embed-element=”aside” ]}%We’re not accustomed to think of rightbloggers as intellectuals. For one

thing — as we have ample opportunity to observe here every week —

they sure don’t act like intellectuals; in fact, they seem

allergic to logical argument, and sometimes even committed to a

backwards Bizarro World version of it.

Cases in point: Recently rightbloggers found in the revelation that SEC investigators had surfed for porn at work “proof

that the big government socialist model is ineffective

— notwithstanding that the surfing took place during the presumably

non-socialist Bush Administration. (Or maybe the Bush SEC was

socialist, but rightbloggers forgot to get mad about it until a Democrat

was President.)
