• • • Who Is John Galt?
Atlas Shrugged movie |Atlas Shrugged |
The big thinkers over at the Atlas Shrugged movie site are taking another poll. [....] And who do the Objectivists see as the ideal John Galt? Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be a popular choice, although there are recommendations for conservative actors Gary Sinise, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Caviezel, and Tom Selleck, too. Daniel Craig, Clive Owen, Nathan Fillion, and even George Clooney are mentioned a few times. Shockingly, only one person mentions Tom Cruise, who for some reason I think would play a great self-satisfied prick.

I got an e-mail this morning detailing the perfect Mother's Day gift for mothers who also happen to be total assholes: “Make May 12th An Atlas Shrugged Mother's Day.”

• In Which Rob! Speaks For Us All
The quality of Slog comments is always very high when compared to other blogs, but I've noticed an increase in the thoughtfulness and all-around engagement of comments over the last couple of weeks. So welcome back to Allyn, caralain, and undead ayn rand, and thank you to everyone else for the great conversation.

• Whiny-Baby Conservative Blogger Won't Run for Office Because Waaaaaaahhhhh
[....] I bet [Erick] Erickson's old relationship with his totally hot girlfriend in Canada would have become an issue during the race, too, and that would've been a real distraction. (“Shut up, guys! She totally exists! We have long conversations about Ayn Rand and then we totally do it. [....].”)

• • Potty-Mouthed President Obama Expertly Dissects Ayn Rand's Novels
Paul Ryan |
[T] the thing that makes me want to stand up and cheer in the Rolling Stone interview is this bit about Ayn Rand [....]. [....] Any president who can carve the thesis of Ayn Rand's "philosophy" to shreds in a single paragraph is my kind of president

•You are god in a physical body
Commentary critical of the self-help book, The Secret.
This is the closest I've ever come to calling for a good old-fashioned book burning, and I've read Dianetics and the Bible and the complete works of Ayn Rand.
