About

The Author

Dizzying Intellect is written by Tanya, who is a “moderate” conservative. If you ask a conservative, that is. That’d translate to “bloodsucking, fascist wingnut,” according to many liberals and most of her family.

The conservative part includes guns, small government, the war, federalism, and politicians staying the hell out of (a) our lives, (b) our bedrooms, and (c) the Constitution.

The moderate part runs toward being rabidly pro-gay rights (yes, she’s straight. Unless Angelina Jolie calls.) and not all that staunchly pro-life, and giving democrats the benefit of the doubt. That last bit has unearthed some really good, amazing people whom most conservatives would never meet. And a few she wishes she‘d never met.

She’s a dyed-in-the-wool Objectivist and mostly a small-l libertarian, except for the drugs and the letting places like Israel and Burma sort themselves out without our help. You can tell it’s going to get confusing around here, right?

Tanya is also an atheist, but not “one of those atheists.” Feel like praying for her or her 1000 year old dog? Go for it, and you’ll get nothing but thanks. But don’t preach about her immortal soul or call her a sinner, and she won’t ban you.

The Blog

This blog has been around, in one form/domain or another, since December 27, 1998. Yes, that’s 653,275 years in online time. Almost all of the archives are here, except for a chunk from 2002 that’s still being translated from html. Look around if you feel like it.

The name of the blog comes from the Battle Of Wits scene in The Princess Bride:
