Lileks wins again

For people (like, say, my girfriend) who wonder why I am so obsessed with James Lileks: it's because unlike almost every other conservative talking head in the world, he's got real talent. Back when I started reading his short humor columns, he didn't show a peep of right-wing mania, aside from the occasional plainchant about how rap music was noisy or baseball players got paid too much. His Gallery of Regrettable Foods and Interior Desecrations books are still drop-dead hilarious, even though he wrote the latter when he was becoming enthralled by Republican bullshit. And even though he gets more cranky and less funny as time goes on, he can still put a bullet between your eyes when you least expect it.

Want proof? Here it is.
