Chomsky blogs!

(via Jason Soon). Legendary leftie (and sometime linguistics scholar) Noam Chomsky now has a blog! Jason has also unearthed several other noteworthy blogs, including a leftie one titled Cyborg Democracy (can anyone tell me what a ‘non-anthropocentric personhood theorist’ is?); Taking Hayek Seriously; and an online economic commentary site called Econ Journal Watch.

B Model Baby may be a tad disappointed in her alleged hero Chomsky’s blog, because a quick glance reveals it currently consists almost entirely of rants about Iraq.

B: Have you read Chomsky?

J: No, but I hate him.

B: How do you know?

J: He hates America, he’s a Pol Pot apologist, he thinks the Holocaust never happened, he hates America, he takes things out of context, his knowledge of history is piss-poor and he doesn’t even have a PhD. in history, he hates America, he never says anything good about the U.S., he always supports communists, he hates America, he’s loose with facts and uses questionable sources, and even his linguistics is shoddy. Oh, and did I mention, he hates America?

B: Oh, really? Forgive me for asking, but if you haven’t read him how do you know all of this?

J: Because”
