Give That Man A Standing Ovation

Megan McCardle is an idiot. The thing about it is pretty much any reasonable person who reads her work on a regular basis would agree with me on that. And yet for some reason she is elevated as some kind of up and coming writer for the right. Now the truth is the right wing really doesn't put that much of a premium on their writers actually making sense. But it still baffles my mind that she even has a job writing for a major publication. I have even seen a few liberal and progressive writers have good things to say about her.

Well Ezra Klein is not having it. This smackdown of her nonsensical screed against health care reform is epic! That is going to leave a mark and it should. I am to the point where it actually offends me that she can be that bad at her job and most people refuse to say so. For that reason Ezra Klein gets major props for speaking truth to power even though they used to be pretty good friends as DougJ pointed out.


  1. I'm so glad you said Megan's an idiot out loud. Her commenters are idiots too. Along with racist and nationalist.

  2. P.S. ...And this is such a chick thing to say but I will NEVER understand TNC's fascination with her...

    **Shame on my pettiness**

  3. It's not a chick thing actually. I have wondered the same thing several times. But I think it just comes down to him working with her. At least thats the only thing I can come up with.

  4. She put Coates on...plain and simple.


Come Hard Or Not At All!
