Nick Gillespie (also known as The Fonzi of Freedom due to his habit of making all of his media appearances wearing a leather jacket) is the former editor of and continuing contributor to the libertarian magazine Reason and host of Reason.tv. As a stock-issue libertarian, Gillespie's philosophy can be boiled down to "legalize everything, deregulate everything, privatize everything." He proved that he will go to any length to fight the soshulizmz when he appeared alongside Jonah Goldberg and some other talking heads on a Glenn Beck documentary that was essentially a long argument by insinuation attempting to associate liberals with Hitler and Stalin. There was also some internet drama between Gillespie and Jon Chait of The New Republic when Chait called him out repeatedly for using pseudostatistics in a debate over taxes. The fact that he doesn't fill up his blog with posts about how tall he is puts him a notch or two above McMegan.
