Post-rational thinking?

Post-rational thinking?

The pundits at MSNBC keep talking about post-rational thinking … what is that when it’s at home?

UPDATE: Answer below in comments. FFS, people, that’s one of the lamest damned things I’ve seen in ages. Rachel Maddow should be ashamed. Not only a neologism, but an incredibly stupid and useless one at that.

    Mark Ames discussed this in the Exile today, although it should be noted that it’s written in their typically offensive/provocative style (here really it’s just the one phrase, “lesbian topper”, used once, that is homophobic/misogynistic, albeit it’s how the subject of the piece is introduced):

    Post-rational = stupid or self-destructive in context.Maddow is supposed to be a rising star (and I’ve seen her actually talk sense about real subjects, which makes her an exception in the US media) but this is poor. Embarrassing.
