The Ayn Rand Journal

You know that rhetorical move when you mockingly compare two other things in a way that illustrates the inconsistencies and contradictions in something?  Your incongruous example is supposed to clarify problems in your target of attack.  Anyway, this is a terrible one, as Jacobin is the Ayn Rand Journal.  Tweet (Glenn Greenwald):

"Has there ever been an entity more directly at war with the defining values of the person it's named after than @MotherJones

It'd be like if @jacobinmag was called the Ayn Rand Journal. 
Poor Mother Jones, the person."
