In a fit of lucidity a few days ago, I commented on This Space for Rent and promptly forgot about it. Then the comment was moderated and appeared as if by magic in my inbox. This is it (slightly adapted):
A capital-L Libertarian is an economic conservative who's so embarrassed to be willing to let the children of the poor go naked and hungry that he has concocted a bullshit rationalization (the unsurpassed perfection of the "free" market) for why any other condition for their hungry naked asses would actually be worse.
If you listen to raving lunatic assholes like Ayn Rand and Phil Gramm.
