Over on the little sidebar link section of Orson Scott Card's the Ornery American, I notice the following gems, among others:

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that I'm going to say something to the effect of Really, Card, really? Favorable references to the fucking Family Research Council? This is how low you've fallen? This is your idea of responsible behavior on the part of a self-identified public intellectual? But what I actually wanted to draw your attention to is the markup. Even though I copied it more or less verbatim into this entry, I'm going to save you the trouble of hitting View Source. Here's what it looks like:

    <TD><FONT FACE="verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif" SIZE=1>

    <div class="list">&#0149; <A HREF="http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=IF04G01">OSC says:
    Don't just take my word about the state of scientific evidence on same-sex
    "marriage."</A></div>

    </FONT></TD>

Dudes. Seriously. Were the ideas just not embarrassing enough?
