Oh my! It seems that Glenn Beck has written a novel with the same title as one of my blog posts. While I continue to support the notion that it is important to examine the limits of what is not socially acceptable to discuss in political discourse, I also firmly disavow any notion that the utter nonsense spewing from Beck’s mouth has anything to do with such a window. Talking provably incorrect bullshit is not “pushing the limits”. Behold the nonsensical “dog returns to his vomit” (there may never be a more apt sentence written about this novel!) “burnt fool’s bandaged finger [going] wabbling back to the fire” teaser. It’s too bad you can’t burn eBooks

Hopefully obviously I was joking about burning books. Even this guy’s opinion deserves to be heard, before promptly being checked for accuracy and discarded.

    If you think “a dog returns to his vomit” is nonsensical then you have not beebn around dogs much.

      Oh it makes perfects sense in a literal context, but I was assuming his book isn’t about canines.

      It doesn’t surprise me that someone that gets so much criticism for saying ridiculous things would like the term Overton Window, since it can be assumed, fallaciously, that if you have a lot of critics, then you must be doing something right.

        “As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.” – Proverbs

        Which part of that is nonsensical?

    You do realize that is from the poem The Gods of the Copybook Headings by Rudyard Kipling http://www.kipling.org.uk/poems_copybook.htm Just thought you should take a break from you Beck bashing and do some fact checking of your own.
