Victor Davis Hanson Is Starting To Creep Us Out

Read this and tell us the noted author and historian isn't channelling this blog:
In classical Athens, public life became dominated by clever and smart-sounding sophists. These mellifluous "really wise guys" made money and gained influence by their rhetorical boasts to "prove" the most amazing "thinkery" that belied common sense.

We are living in a new age of sophism -- but without a modern equivalent of Socrates to remind the public just how silly our highly credentialed and privileged new rhetoricians can often sound.
Damn it, if he keeps this up, TMR's going to offer the ol' boy a job!
