No Triumph of the WILL joke? I'm disappointed.

There's kind of an embedded one:

"In the first place, why would one choose to begin an opinion -- particularly one dealing with civil rights issues -- with a German term, especially one that incorporates the word 'kampf,' with its reverberations of Hitler's Mein Kampf and the persecution and extermination of Jews, gay people, and other minorities in Nazi Germany?"

So if the Professor says "thus a left wing analog to WILL would the ACLU", and the ACLU defends the First Amendment, does that mean WILL is on the other side?

(I tried posting this snark on his site and he deleted it. Don't want to offend the patrons!)

They're quite sensitive.

No, Mr. Foust, I did not delete it. It's a ridiculous point but feel free to post it.

Thank you for the correction. I'd be happy to blame it on Blogspot. It was there, now it's gone.
