Silly season

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 17 years ago, in 2007, on the World Wide Web.

    As far as the real candidates go, Gravel gets my vote for the best campaign vids by several light-minutes.

    His rock + lake one was a masterpiece in terms of illustrating the solidist/fluidist dialectic so inherent to the very semiotic ontology of contemporary U.S. American politics.

    The fire one I didn’t like quite so much, but it still provided a far better analysis of the problems with a fiat currency based fractional reserve banking system than anything St Ron. has said on the matter.
