Color me not surprised

Walter Williams, the economics professor who alleged that subjects of a study ate 32 ounces of DDT a day for a year and a half and had no negative health consequences (a 1979 World Health Organization study found that a single dose of 1/20 an ounce has toxic effects in humans) will be guest hosting the Rush Limbaugh radio program on August 24. Imagine that.

I also noticed that Williams is the recipient of the John M. Olin Distinguished Professorship grant. For those not aware, the Olin Foundation is one of the chief underwriters of the conservative movement.

Also, Williams has been named as a potential vice presidential candidate by the ultra-ideological libertarian/John Birch Society fan/New World Order conspiracist/Patriot movement sympathist presidential candidate Ron Paul.
