  • Ayn Rand is so popular now, someone even made a straight-to-YouTube movie about her and who knows what’s next, maybe a Hulu minseries? [Hit & Run]
  • Dear Young Person: Oh hey, you don’t have a summer job either? Heck, Nobody does, and that is why we are all selling our Ritalin perscriptions or goose-stepping around DC with red badges stapled to our foreheads! [Daily Intel]
  • Many communists are still peeved by Arizona’s You Look Like A Mexican Law, and that is why they are boycotting Arizona’s #1 major league baseball team, the… Tucson… Dodgers. [Think Progress]
  • Ezra Klein spent his Memorial Day shopping for “cultural revolution” condos in suburban China, i.e. hating The Troops as hard as he possibly could. [Ezra Klein]

    Awesome! Now I can VOTE against baby-mama!

  • JMP

    Ha ha, the Objectivists can’t get their Galt movie made. Where’s your free market now, bitches?

  • SmutBoffin

    When will someone get around to telling the folks at Reason that Ayn Rand wrote fiction?

  • chascates

    The Lord of the Rings, and Atlas Shrugged, are two books you can give a 15-year-old kid that’ll change his life forever. One will draw him into a fantasy world where people who are losers in real life can become heroic captains engaged in a timeless, righteous struggle against evil. The other is about orcs.

    This is all you need to know about Ayn Rand-holes —

    Glad to be of service.

  • freakishlystrong

    Today, we are all fursonas.

  • President Beeblebrox

    The Atlas Shrugged movie has been in development for about 30 years. At one point Farrah Fawcett was cast as Dagny Taggart. They ought to keep that casting decision – it would make for some lulzy, if Lovecraftian, film.

    [re=588387]DangerousLiberal[/re]: Anyone who has read “The Passion of Ayn Rand” will know that photo isn’t all that far off the mark for Rand’s fetish preferences. The only thing that’s missing is a mink coat.

    Yes, I am a former Randroid.

  • SlouchingTowardsWasilla

    Wait, after a cabal of Randites destroyed the global economy, Ayn Rand’s popularity increased? It’s like buying tickets for a trip on a reproduction of the Hindenberg.

    Are the interns spotted with acne?

  • schvitzatura

    Camp Mama Grizz vs. Camp Wellstone.

    Now all that is needed is a CFIT with Palin & Co. onboard, to ensure sainthood…and parity.

    “Talking to my friend one day this Spring, she informed me that her boss is up for reelection this year, and asked if my boss is also.”
    And you’re now fuck friends for life, I take it. Sweet.

  • Gorillionaire

    Ezra Klein went to China? I thought I saw him playing bass for The Roots on TV?

    [re=588431]President Beeblebrox[/re]:
    The title should be changed to “Atlas and the City”. It could then draw big box from post-menopausal women and males who subscribe to “Ramrod”.

    [re=588359]JMP[/re]: It’s just that there’s a limited market for tranny furry porn. Outside of Japan, of course.

  • Abou Diaby

    I read Atlas Shrugged when I was twenty and all I can remember from reading that long ass book was that even dudes that look like carrot top can get laid if they have a good career.
