When good science meets bad politics ...


... what you get is a wrongness singularity. It's rare to find things like Pauli exclusion principle, Fermi degeneracy, and Chandrasekhar limit applied to political arguments of the 'wrong' sort; but when they are, they show a blog that "collapses in on itself", at which point, it's not clear "whether the resulting end state will be an intermediate neutron-blog phase, or whether the collapse will proceed all the way to a singularity surrounded by a black hole event horizon".

What a fun way to start one's morning!
