Quote Of The Day, Easter Saturday Edition

Courtesy of The Corner's increasingly wacky Victor Davis Hanson:

In academic circles the last two decades, pirates have been romanticized in a variety of contexts—as in pirates being contrarian individualists, admirable anarchists, Marxist redistributionists, sexually ambiguous, cross-dressing, transgendered libertines, and Lotus-eater-like sensualists, rather than as murderous criminals. Who knows, maybe such esoteric theorizing has filtered down to the U.S. State Department.

--Isaac Chotiner
