Eric Erickson: Boy Genius

This is one of the silliest things I've ever read.  In the course of burbling an incoherent ode to the light bulb, Erik Erickson writes:

People may not realize it, but one of the first acts of the Democratic Congress in 2007, was to ban the light bulb effective in 2014.
Now, you may say that this is an exaggeration, and it is a bit, but the incandescent light bulb is the light bulb of choice for millions of Americans. It turns on instantly, it can be tossed in the trash without summoning a hazmat team, and is cheap.
Got that?  Congress banned the light bulb except that that claim is a bit exaggerated but people like the light bulb.  These statements are supposed, I assume, to be an argument; what they are is a series of sentences in close proximity to one another.
