Libertarian Phony

Well, if that don't beat all.

From Libertarian Hypocrite to Libertarian Racist to Libertarian Phony.

It appears that this guy was perpetrating a scam blog all along, posting the picture of an attractive, young blond girl, and calling his site, appropriately enough, Libertarian Girl.

Well, it turns out that the author of the blog is not the attractive, young blond girl at all. Indeed, the author is not even a female, but a 30-something man living at home.

This site referenced HIS site two previous times, both attempting to show the hypocrisy and racist arguments that the author portended. The fact that the author is somebody other than he/she pretended to be wasn't the issue, of course; the topic at hand was the issue.

However, it is totally within the realm of reality that the guy was a phony from the start. After all, the arguments were ludicrous on their face, and whether they were conveyed from a beautiful young female or an ugly middle-aged man is ultimately irrelevant.

What is relevant is that the guy seems to be taking an unseemly joy at being outed. My feeling is that the guy actually needs psychological counseling, and the sooner the better.

Hat tip to Catallarchy.

Just another wonderful example of the Blogosphere Out Of Control.
