Letter: Bamboozlers

Pete Mjos’ recent letter to the ADN (Aug. 29) included extensive quotes from both Carl Sagan and Sarah Palin. Talk about strange bedfellows, particularly the “... absolute unintelligible balderdash” attributable to Palin.

More to the point was Mjos’ all-star lineup of bamboozlers, including Palin, Donald Trump, the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike Dunleavy and Dave Bronson, all of whom register the highest red alert level on The Baloney Detection Meter. I can think of a number of other candidates for the bamboozlers’ list, whom I won’t name here. Suffice it to say that I agree with much of what Mjos had to say. Thanks, Pete, for the enlightening insights.
