PZ Myers attended David Horowitz's lecture the other night. It was funny. And sad. But definitely funny. As for the kid who stood up at the end, made note of his service in Iraq, and called Kerry unAmerican for opposing the war (which Kerry, by the way, didn't do), I wouldn't worry about the round of applause he got. I've noticed that when a soldier stands up at any sort of campus political event and expresses any opinion, pro or con, smart or dumb, they get a wild round of applause. Students generally hold their battle-tested peers in a kind of awe, and the cascade of clapping has more to do with our guilt (there but for fortune...) than their opinions.

Update: Speaking of shit that makes no sense, Berube found a pile.
