I feel like one of my responsibilities is to pay attention to the ravings of the lunatic right, if for no other reason than that when I encounter someone speaking of these lunatics as though they are respectable scholars or thinkers, I’ll be fully armed for argument. The most recent fringe case to make his way onto my radar screen is Dr. Thomas E. Woods, author of a book entitled the Politically Incorrect Guide to American History. I first read of the book in New York Times piece by Adam Cohen last week, and this morning I found Eric Muller’s dismantlement of the book and its author by way of Ed Cone.
