Stanley Fish

by Larry Tate on March 9, 2010

I really hate what he just said.

Fish’s claim that everyone is now getting nostalgic for the good old days of George Bush may literally be the dumbest and most pointless thing I’ve ever read. It is difficult for me to imagine a universe in which the text on the other end of the above link could could be considered reasonable, thoughtful or productive. In a sane world, merely expressing these thoughts, much less writing them down in the NY Times, would be grounds for immediate execution.

I’m not sure which of these things is more annoying: the fact that what he says is so emphatically and demonstrably false or that a central pillar of evidence used to bolster his claim is a billboard in rural Minnesota.

We live in a world of almost unimaginable stupidity.

Swim off and die, Stanley.
