I would never post this had it not come from that paragon of right-of-center respectability, UCLA Law Prof. Stephen Bainbridge. But since it does, I cannot resist:
Bush: Commie Dupe? Here at ProfessorBainbridge.com, we dote on conspiracy theories. So we were amused by science fiction writer Charles Stross argument “that George W.

Of course, Prof. Bainbridge also mentions in the comments to that item that “here at ProfessorBainbridge.com we were very taken with Cthulhu’s slogan in the 2004 Presidential race: ‘Why settle for the lesser of two evils?'” … so be forewarned….
