ISO Libertarian Love
We're sort of befuddled that our jab at the prospects for Libertarian sex-for-votes trading didn't generate more indignant email from outraged Reason subscribers. These are people who can get a lively debate going about Schumpeter versus von Mises, but accuse them of not getting any and they're suspiciously silent. Sure, they talk a good free love game, but where are the swinging Chicago school devotees when push comes to, uhm, shove? We're not the only ones wondering. Noting that a special on A&E this week blares, "There may be as many as 50,000 people involved in polygamous relationships in Utah," a libertarian livejournaler responds, "And you poly Objectivists think you're all kinky and shit! Ha! You guys are being outfucked by MORMONS!"
In related news, Mary Matalin and James Carville are hosting a "kick-off event" at the National Press Club this Wednesday for Match.com's own get-out-the-vote publicity stunt -- I mean, "effort": Every Single Vote Counts. Personally, it's hard to think of anything that would make me less interested in getting married (or trading my vote for sex) than the unholy union of Carville and Matalin. Maybe it's some kind of polygamist Mormon conspiracy. . .
