Where Do They All Come From?

Pharyngula: Wingnuts Mangling Science Again, re: Wizbang

Where do they come from, these
madmen, these devotees
of trembling corundums
and specious conundrums,
exchanging arrangements
of blooming derangements,
like children with posies
held up to their noses,
admiring some sweet scent
from long, long ago?

What do they see when they
unbox some new nosegay,
fresh from some florist who
deals in these things that you
somehow, instinctively
see for distinctively
not what they're meant to be:
"If they were sent to me,
I'd have them quarantined,
locked up and gasolined;
these are not flowers."?

Why do they always come
raging like bulls from some
china-shop closeout sale,
ready to hot-exhale
down your neck, just before
drowning the stands in gore,
nostrils dilated with
things they're frustrated with,
burning-eyed juggernauts
out to kill argonauts;
and how do they constantly
miss by a mile?

I believe these people come from public schools and universities.

A voice from the back of the crowd,
Intrepid and forceful and loud
Plays gibbering oracle
To questions rhetorical,
Flying his flimflam-flag proud!
