It's what's for breakfast
Elections are usually less occasions for learning than we might wish. But I do believe that 2012 had the salutory effect of educating at least some members of the public that Ayn Rand is a joke. With an unrepentent vulture capitalist and tax cheat at the head of the ticket and a true blue Randian misanthrope as the Vice, it was her moment to shine. I would guess that most people had never heard of here before, but among those who had there were more than a few who thought she was worthy of respect. I suspect some of them have learned otherwise.
