Next To The Nobel Committee Wearing Sashes Announcing "We're Racist Dupes And Hypocrits"
This news couldn't be any better.
I've been thinking over why I find this news so amusing and so gratifying. It comes down to a line from Deep Space Nine: "A true victory is to make your enemy see they were wrong to oppose you in the first place. To force them to acknowledge your greatness."
What we really want is for our intellectual opponents to come to us one day and admit that we were right all along to believe that they couldn't really believe the bilge that they were speaking. We were right; they were wrong; and they knew it at the time.
Of course, in real life that never happens, making this the next best thing.
