Great Moments In Eschaton History

It wasn't the most important thing ever, but it was certainly a hell of a lot of fun when the Washington Post hired conservative idiot Ben Domenech to "balance" Dan Froomkin. Domenech's previous contribution to our discourse was penning this line for a speech for Senator Cornyn, though Cornyn was sadly smart enough not to actually deliver the line.

It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. . . . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.

Poor Ben left his job after numerous incidents of plagiarism were discovered, but not before Erick "Son of Erick" Erickson wrote one of the funniest things in history.

And the Box Turtle line? Apparently he borrowed that, too.

Ah. Good times. I spent days laughing.
