Washington Monthly held a contest for the nuttiest right-wingin’ blog post, called the Golden Wingnut Award, and they have a big winner! It’s a good one too, from a blog called Powerline, that starts out like this:
It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.
This is not a joke. And written in July of 2005, well after any there were any doubts to his lack of extraordinary vision and brilliance. Well after. Long, long after. These people are rich! The runner-up is that brilliant law professor who I had a brief interaction with recently, Mr. Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds. Good stuff, read it all here!
