News & Politics

"Uber-conservative online magazine Human Events Online has the Top 10 Most Harmful Books ever, and frankly, there are some surprises. The first, and this one is gonna hurt in Kansas, is that The Origin of the Species only got honorable mention, not even beating out John Maynard Keynes," writes Amanda Marcotte. "The other big surprise is that the distinguished (as it can be with Phyllis Schlafly on it) panel didn't supress their worst urges and put The Communist Manifesto above Mein Kampf. You'd think these fuckers would be grateful to the Commmies for giving the news a reason to pretend that Reagan wasn't a mean old asshole who supported apartheid during the 5 year long funeral. But let us examine the list in all its glory." Hysterical, read the whole thing please. (Pandagon)
