In a flip-flop so quick it would make Mitt Romney’s head spin, Paul Ryan (R-
Ayn’s Boudoir Thomas Aquinas’ Boudoir???) has recanted the love he held for his Objectivist mistress, seeking to atone for his misguided love of all things Rand.
“I reject her philosophy,” Ryan says firmly. “It’s an atheist philosophy. It reduces human interactions down to mere contracts and it is antithetical to my worldview. If somebody is going to try to paste a person’s view on epistemology to me, then give me Thomas Aquinas,” who believed that man needs divine help in the pursuit of knowledge. “Don’t give me Ayn Rand,” he says.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Can’t a man love the way John Galt once loved? I guess not…
