    Steve Almond is an idiot and seems to completely acknowledge it in that essay.

    Will strikes me as a troll who reduces “complex cultural issues to ad hominem assaults.” (Almond, S., “Liberals Are Ruining America. I Know Because I am One.” NY Times Magazine, June 8, 2012. Web.)

    Glenn, not a bad quip. I was being a bit humorous, haha. But, Almond actually does discuss how much of an idiot he was/is, etc.
