Blogging, Narcissism, And Ebola (Oh My?)

Blogging requires a heavy dose of delusion, if not outright narcissism: you have to believe that your writing will genuinely make a difference, when, in reality, you’re usually just shouting at clouds.

Holy Hephaestus, Erickson compared blogging to treating sick people whose disease could kill you. I’m waiting for the “Jesus is my content provider” bumper sticker. Of course, Coulter makes him seem reasonable, since she argued that Brantly shouldn’t have been helping at all.

At least he didn’t compare it to this medic:
