And Now: Hot Air Falls for Applause-Gate
The right wing blogosphere is doing something useful this holiday weekend: providing solid empirical evidence that stupidity is contagious.
Obviously, most Hot Air readers disagree with my assessment (and Allahpundit’s) of Barack Obama’s speech last Wednesday evening at the University of Arizona. They also blame Obama more for the odd tone of the event, with its whooping and whistling and t-shirts, than the university that organized it. Fair enough. But one thing on which we can all agree is that that the White House wrote the speech, and apparently added “applause” indicators into Obama’s speech that the university put on the Jumbotron in their captioning for the audience.
Update: Guy Benson says that the White House may not have been responsible for the applause indicators…
Notice that Morrissey starts by complaining that he and Allahpundit were getting slammed by their own readers for not hatin’ on Obama enough. But the magic healing power of stupid shall reunite those torn asunder by moderation.
