If there ever was an example of the insanity that passes for commentary at the John Locke Foundation it is this entry by "Dr" Michael Sanera at the Lockerroom: The taxpayers pay for this nonsense about an article at Townhall by UNCW Professor Mike Adams on a "new scholarly journal", The Journal of Genetic Rationalization

What Sanera fails to acknowledge is that this is a satirical article, as can be realized from the opening sentence:

The University of North Carolina - Wishful Thinking (UNCW) has announced the establishment of a new journal called The Journal of Genetic Rationalization.

Sanera writes, with no hint of irony:

Just when I thought the crazy antics of university faculty could not possibly get worse, UNCW Professor Mike Adams reports on establishment of a new scholarly journal, The Journal of Genetic Rationalization. In his article, he prints the table of contents from the first issue.
I better double check the calendar. Yes, it is February 1st not April 1st.

Sanera even underlines one sentence:

This conclusion is not based on scientific evidence.

Dear "Dr" Sanera:

This article is not based on reality.

Trying to seduce headline readers into a frenzy of antidisestablishmentarianism may improve internal stats but it underlines the incredibility of the Locke Box.


How can you even stand reading that stuff?

I'm glad you, Jerimee and James are on it, but I'm just staying away from the anything that has to do with Civitas, JLF and Art Pope.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Oh, my.

Now, let's see if the N&O asks their go-to sources why they fell for a farce? Aren't they a "source", doesn't that mean they do research?

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.


Not the sharpest knife in the Puppet drawer.


Welcome to the irony-free zone. I hope he never reads The Onion. No telling what might happen.

That is probably one of the saddest things

I've seen in quite a while.

A right-wing anti-pc criminology professor writes a satirical anti-science column to poke fun at the dirty over-scienced libruls he's forced to share a campus with everyday ... and his own right-wing compatriots up in the John Locke Office of Ivory Tower Counter-Intelligentsia are too dull and backwards to get that the conservative professor is desperately trying to be funny.

Sad. Just sad. I fear this bodes ill for conservative humorists. How will they make a living when their customer base looks like a scene from Idiocracy?

Is this how those wacko wingnut emails about Obama and Hillary get started?

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Proof that Republics just aren't funny.

I know they typically make me frown.

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

No kidding!

I still re-read his book of rants and wonder what the hell happened.

What's he thinking?

It's not like most reps are gonna get all those esoteric Thomas Pynchon references Miller used to make. And do you remember his ill-fated talk show? Man, that guy made Arsenio Hall's interviews look like Bob Edwards's.

Mike Adams

While not all his columns are home runs, I think many are pretty good. Especailly with his anti-PC rants, he can write some good stuff. He mostly discusses the state of political correctness on college campuses.

I have to agree with much of what he says on that subject. I have never witnessed such widespread intolerance of others' views as that which I saw coming from those students in Chapel Hill who seemed to be the ones preaching tolerance the most.
