In the annals of lack of self-awareness, I offer you this from Teen Machine alum Nick Gillespie
I’m sure I’m not alone among sentient beings in being put off by Lena Dunham’s “First Time” pitch for Barack Obama. I’m not offended or disturbed that she likens voting to sex; it’s that she participates in a pretty creepy cult of personality thing.
Ayn Rand. No additional comment necessary.
Obligatory Jon Rogers quote:
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
That never gets old.
