I was catching up on the news when I came across this rather inspiring article about a patriotic Idaho politician’s admirable quest to make Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged required reading in his state’s schools. Unfortunately, I never made it past the headline image, because Sainted Mother of Nixon those are some disturbing teeth.
Who was her dentist? H.P. Lovecraft? You’d think the woman who made such a big deal about personal responsibility would’ve applied some to her own dental hygiene. Not that she was much to look at either way, but Jesus — I’ve seen syphilitic octogenarians with better sets of choppers.
Anyhow, don’t let Rand’s disgusting teeth turn you off from her novels. And if you’re a busy man like me who possesses neither the time nor the estrogen for books, might I recommend the excellent Atlas Shrugged movies — sci-fi epics that are to conservatism what Battlefield Earth is to Scientology. Believe it.
