I Hereby Renounce All Cause and Effect
I was just on Fox a little while ago on Megyn Kelly’s show debating a liberal radio “host” from Detroit named Nancy Skinner. I’m afraid I lost my temper a little bit, but the feedback from readers is that it was appropriate. Anyway, Skinner simply would not let go of the fact that while there is zero evidence supporting the claim Loughner was driven by conservative “anti-government” rhetoric, he was in fact driven by the very same rhetoric.
After I objected with some enthusiasm, she just kept stammering something to the effect of “Jonah doesn’t believe there’s any such thing as ‘cause and effect.’”
As a colleague of mine put it, “Pool sticks don’t work in Jonah’s world!”
