Re: Mark Shea jumps the shark on Paul Ryan

It's heartening to both read this post, and at the same time be reminded of W. Chambers' mighty review of that Rand novel. 

Shea is a curious character. There is something very jarring about the smiling photo, and his self-described "Catholic and enjoying it, juxtaposed with his too-frequent pontifical sneer. But then, I suppose we all look that silly, given the right angle. Still, his 'pick a fight' posts are unreadable, unenlightening, and certainly unpersuasive.

It's almost comic to misunderstand Rep Ryan as a thoroughgoing Randite. Such people exist, and they don't talk, think, or believe much like the congressman. Since Shea's probably sincere, not just repeating this Ryan-Rand thing as a left-wing talking point, you have to wonder just how familiar he is with the followers of Rand.

Stay informed
