The Convulsions of the Right-Wing Outrage Machine
The headline at Hot Air read “Notre Dame Faculty Calls Obama so-Called Accomodation “Grave Violation of Religious Freedom.” Wow! The pointy-headed side of conservatism has spoken out about this travesty, I thought. K. Lopez at The Corner on NRO is always going on about them, so I know that they Matter.
Then I read the article. It seems that 25 faculty members have signed this petition. Yes, that’s twenty-five. I looked up the size of Notre Dame’s faculty and there are about 1600 of them.
25 out of 1600! That’s completely embarrassing! They should be really, really humiliated that they could only get that many signatures. Here at Berkeley you could probably find 25 people who are waiting for the second coming of Karl Marx. But we don’t put out press releases and try to raise the ire of the masses on the basis of 25 nuts.
The Right Wing Outrage Machine. More desperate every day.
