A 'Little Red Book' Twofer

I didn't think the style of writing in contemporary science could be any worse, but then I saw this:
Wikipedia | Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong

Quotes from Mao were either bold-faced or highlighted in red, and almost all writing, including scientific essays, had to quote Mao.
Nothing like some quotes from one of the world's most prolific democides to spice up your next journal article.

Megan McArdle | Radical Chic:

I thought that this must be some kind of grotesque conservative exaggeration, but no, White House Communications Director Anita Dunn really did tell a graduating high school class to emulate Mao Tse-Tung's bold and imaginative attitude during his takeover of China. Most of us look at the tens of millions who died and maybe think twice about trying to imitate the late Chairman, but hey, think different!

Glenn Beck is a troll, but sweet googly moogly, that is batshit insane.
