Rapturous Irony

Charlie Sykes on his show this morning talked about Harold Camping, the preacher man who had incorrectly predicted the rapture for last weekend (starting around the 22 minute mark):
"Obviously, there are people out there that are able to convince their followers, who live within their bubble, that they know something.....There are people that believe all sorts of crazy things....If you believe something as a religious matter of faith or ideology, then it doesn't matter what the facts are, it doesn't matter what happened, because you're always going to believe it, you're always going to fit it into your overall theory."
Kind of explains talk radio, doesn't it?

Sykes earlier: "My evidence...absolutely none."


  1. That's too good. Charlie is so clueless sometimes.

  2. Char-LIE isn't clueless, but he knows his listeners are.
