It's the latest rage among us liberal bloggers, so I have to write a post on it so that I can be part of the throng. The "other guys," the conservatives and the Conservatives (big C and little c), do it and we liberals don't, so it seems that it is a bad thing. The effect that it has on them is uncertain. I have read that it makes them stupid; I have also read that it is the result of stupidity. Since I have not done it, I remain open as to its effect. Or its cause.
As for me, I'm not sure I want to know what my epistemic is.
