Running up that hill

How people find these things is beyond me. But they do and reading such items certainly can be weirdly entertaining in shorts bursts. Nonetheless, the post in question was making the rounds, to the bemusement of many, in which Sisyphus denounced Heliocentrism as an historical lie promulgated by a cabal of conspiratorial Jews, Wiccans, atheists and other pagan ne'er-do-wells. In fact, he/she went so far as to label heliocentricism a "fatuous lie." Not that there aren't flat-earthers still around, too, but the true amusement here has to be drawn from the fact that the post appeared at Blogs 4 Brownback, designed and maintained, I suspect, by a cabal of contrarians who really, really hate Sam Brownback and wish nothing but doom for his presidential campaign. Either that or Sisyphus is trying to self-actualize his/her Greek doom by adopting a position so bizarre that they will suffer a lifetime of burdensome insult and still keep pushing every ridiculous notion they can conjure.

Really, what else could it be?

Could it be performance art? A hoax? This has to have something to do with that Borat fellow, right?

Great way to plumb the depths of the great dumbing down. Are you smarter than a 5th grader indeed!

This guy couldn't be real, could he? I mean, even the most cynical progressive would find it hard to believe that this is meant to be believed! It is wonderfully funny -- and terrifying.
