P.Z. Myers Can Be A Scientist & An Atheist, But The Red Nose, Make-Up, & Confetti Are All His

Jesus Christ. For a brief moment there, P.Z. Myers had won us over with his robust defense of free speech for skeptics; but then, after Jared Lee Loughner went bonkers and that abortion doctor got busted - wow. According to James Taranto at The Wall Street Journal, P.Z. promptly climbed back aboard his turnip truck, just so he could fall off of it again:
Myers seems to think symbolic speech from his political foes is a worse offense than the actual killing of babies. His lack of perspective is so gross that it has led him to outright depravity.
Ouch. Ouch. And Ouch. As they say, read the whole thing for yourself.

Oh well. We wish we could say we're surprised, but we were calling Myers a "clown" long before Taranto (apparently) even knew he existed. Still, it's a crying shame:

If P.Z. Myers wasn't a crazy Liberal, he'd be brilliant.
