Mark Steyn Embarrasses Himself in PublicI have long enjoyed his witty, if sometimes slightly superficial, analyses. He can make me laugh out loud.
Probably not any more - i think Tim Lambert has terminated that phase in my life by quoting this stupidity:
By comparison, the evolutionists’ insistence that we’re just another “animal” seems perverse and irrational and refuted by a casual glance out the window. I am coming round to the view that hyper-rationalism is highly irrational.I now know where the glibness he displays comes from. A casual glance out the window is enough.
UPDATE: Count on P Z Myers to complete the exposure.
UPDATE: I thought the defrocking above was enough but I have to confess I sympathize with all those commenting on the Pharyngula blog. It will be interesting to see if Steyn is actually prepared to live in the blogosphere or just wants to stonewall. I am slightly sad about this, but always happy to strike someone unworthy off my list of pages to read.
