Radley Balko once again demonstrates his total awesomeness.
Actually, Radley’s not all that awesome, it just that his opponent at the Republican Liberty Caucus of Illinois is incredibly stupid. He accuses Radley of padding his resume by falsely claiming to be a biweekly columnist for Forbes.com, and then demonstrates that a search shows only two of Radleys columns.
The problem is that Radley doesn’t claim he’s a biweekly columnist for Forbes, he’s a biweekly columnist for FoxNews.com.
Well, the folks at the RLCIL have changed their stupid post. (Radley still has screen shots of the old one.) Now they’re claiming they actually searched the foxnews.com site and found only three links for Radley’s columns. I tried it in Google myself, and I found four links, which is close enough, I guess.
However, I then spent another 30 fracking seconds poking around the Fox News site to get this complete index of all 50 of Radley Balko’s columns over the last two years. These idiots don’t even know how to navigate a web site!
Update: They’ve taken down the page, but Radley still has screen captures.
You know, when I look at the RLCIL’s “About” page, I like what I see. Supposedly, they support:
Lower and fewer taxes
The right to privacy
The right to keep and bear arms
Balanced budgets through spending cuts
Freedom of speech
Protection of property rights
Market-based health care
Alternatives to the drug war
All-volunteer armed forces
Sound monetary policies
Phase-out of foreign aid
Ending federal welfare
Private options to Social Security
Free trade Privatization of government functions
I agree with most of those things, and so does Radley, so I find the fight between them confusing.
