Not only is Charlie Pierce one of my favorite writers -- his latest book, Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free, is one of those rare must-reads that's simultaneously a delightful piece of prose -- he's also one of my favorite people. Here he is, at his Netroots Nation book signing, talking about the Creation Museum in Kentucky that is the centerpiece of the book.

I taped every panel I went to and this was my favorite snippet. Unfortunately, as you can see, I'm still very much in the learning phase for handling one of these cameras well.
