Helping the coining of a new term: the Loonisphere

Ed Brayton over at Dispatches from the Culture Wars has had a fantastic idea, one I think I'll usurp and use whenever I think to from now on.

This new term occurred to me as a useful one for those of us who regularly chronicle the nuttiness of the right wing: the Loonisphere. The loonisphere is a magical place where the laws of logic do not apply. A place where not allowing someone to oppress another is a violation of the oppressor's religious freedom, where quitting one's job is done to avoid being a quitter, where destroying the constitution is necessary to prevent terrorists from destroying the constitution and where someone who advocates killing untold numbers of people in another country can call themself "pro-life" without a hint of irony.

It's a good word for a good use.
