Leaders and Followers

I’m thrilled an anybody else on the interwebs that Rubio dumped his support of PIPA, but this shit is nonsense:

About 40 minutes ago, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida showed again why he is a real leader and listener within the conservative movement. He is dropping his co-sponsorship of Protect IP.

Guh? So he sponsored a bill without thinking through its ramifications, then only dropped his sponsorship at the last moment in response to the largest online protest in history—and that makes him a hero and listener?

“FreshBerry has no drains at all, YoBe funnels its liquid waste into a giant roof cistern clogged with dead pigeons, and Yogurt Mountain simply heaves its wastewater on the street one bucket at a time,”

or

“The plural of ‘anecdote’ is ‘data’ in the conservative mind.”
