Why is a baby front page news?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a baby. So what? Why is this continuing front page news?

PS The proud parents appear to have seriously right wing politics…

They may be offered roles in the filming of Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’, and are apparent devotees of her philosophy, she being the cult leader of the ‘Greed is Good’ bunch. Selfishness is another of their favored ‘virtues.’ Ditto for unbridled predatory capitalism. Rand provided the philosophical rationalization for the avaricious imperialism so favored by today’s neocons.

It’s not a stretch to assume Rand enthusiast Angelina Jolie‘s name has been brought up. Brad Pitt, also a fan, is rumored to be among the names suggested for lead male character John Galt.


  1. Ayn Rand is responsible for everything that is bad about Western political thinking today.

    That, and a Rush album, and nobody wants that.

  2. Among Rand’s early acolytes was Allen Greenspan, former US Fed chairman.

    Jon Hoenig, who recently foamed at the mouth on Fox saying there’s no proof of global warming and it’s a conspiracy by Greens who hate ‘advancement’ and want ‘to lead us back to the stone age’ would be another. (His investment company is charmingly named Capitalist Pig)

    Loony Tunes, aren’t they?
