Heh. It's the lefty equivalent of AGW denialism.

Thanks for starting this thread. I had bookmarked a few other things to pass along on this topic, but hadn't yet gotten around to it. So, without further ado:

See PZ here (http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2010/07/salon_v_huffington_post.php), and the Pareene post (http://www.salon.com/news/huffington_post/index.html?story=/politics/war_room/2010/07/07/huffpo_antiscience) he links to. See also this from PZ (http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2010/07/huffpo_adds_cowardice_to_their.php).

More links here (http://bjkeefe.blogspot.com/2010/03/good-bust.html), here (http://bjkeefe.blogspot.com/2009/11/moonbattery-not-enough-for-you-huh.html), here (http://bjkeefe.blogspot.com/2009/07/woopo.html), and here (http://bjkeefe.blogspot.com/2009/04/just-in-case-you-werent-convinced.html), collected over the past year or so.

If anyone says that, he or she clearly hasn't noticed that PZ is far from the only one getting cranky about the HuffPo's moonbattery. I would actually like to try to get a ball rolling here. Given the amount of traffic HuffPo gets, it'd be worth trying to get them to stop spreading so much bad information, or at least, trying to get them to post obvious links to good rebuttals on the same page, if they do insist on some tiresome "all voices should be heard" wankery.

But! They're making up for it by running racist "jokes" from Laura Ingraham (http://www.rumproast.com/index.php/site/comments/what_are_they_huffing_at_huffpo/)!
