You do tend to get huffy and indignant any time someone recites a bit of received liberal wisdom. Specially when it's true. Eg Ayn Rand is bad. We invaded Iraq for oil. Jet fuel can't melt steel beams .

I sense a passive aggressiveness at play. he wasn't first to post it, so now claiming to be disinterested. like a pouty teen.

"dinner's on the table!"
"Not hungry."
"What do you mean you're not hungry, what's the matter with you?"
"Nuthin' ".

a classic opening line...

Ted Cruz has long had a public reputation as an unctuous asshole. Even so, his staffers have tended to hold him in high regard as a kind and geeky man who treated his underlings well even while his fellow senators loathed him. Now, though, “most of Cruzworld is pretty disgusted” with the senator for choosing to back Donald Trump’s absurd claims of widespread election fraud, in the words of one former aide. As another former aide put it, “Everyone is upset with the direction things have gone, and the longer they’ve been with the senator, the more distaste they are expressing.”

“He’s supposed to be a smart asshole,” said the former top Trump aide. “That’s where there’s a bit of consternation for me. He’s totally misguided by his own bullshit. He buys into his bullshit more than other people. He’s supposed to at least be a smart, savvy asshole.”

I haven't actually read her novels, don't be stupid.
This is one of those ones where you absolutely do not need to read them, not even in a "know your enemies" way.

For my sins I have read the Fountainhead and it is bad on almost every level. You would learn more about philosophy from Richard Allen's skinhead novels and the most abstruse post structuralist academics have better plot and characters.
