Wombat's Laws: Science Marches On

Several years ago, I advanced the Wombat Law of Homophobia: the louder and uglier the speech, the more likely closeted.

In the spirit of scientific inquiry, I submit the Wombat General Theory of Bloviation: the louder, more certain, more dogmatic and more intolerant the bloviation, the more likely hypocrisy or denial/projection are at work. The key experimental observation made my my colleagues at the LBC imply that hypocrisy and denial may, in fact, be two manifestations of the same fundamental particles, dubbed 'coprotrons'...
