Each of his proposed “Liberty Amendments” [re Radio talk show host Mark Levin’s new book, which I haven’t read and about which I take no position otherwise here] is laid out in a brief chapter that explains its importance, sources it to the writings of the Founding Fathers, and anticipates the more reasonable objections that would likely be raised.  Little time is wasted on the unreasonable objections, for Levin does not intend to address an audience of the stupid, greedy, or hysterical.  He also knows his statist adversaries are not interested in rationally discussing the death of the Leviathan they nourished for generations.

This is a nice summary of the thinking that’s led me to so many James Bond watch identifications, against countless others so often so tragically wrong.

In a nutshell: They fall in love with their own biases, the noise of their keyboard clicks when pontificating, the prettiness of the images they’ve stolen for posting to their blogs.
