Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

Megan Explains Herself

This post deserves careful, loving treatment. It deserves to have a spa day all for its very own, where its words can be painted and polished, and its little face given a mud bath. It's so very sweet and precious you just want to hug it.

Go, read it. You know you want to, even if you feel naughty afterwards.

Oh why did you make me read it? Me so filthy. I love this bit

"So the idea that Krugman has somehow won one for the team by predicting something that libertarian/conservative/free-market commentators didn't see coming is either misinformed, or lunatic"

just so she can deflect even more criticism that she is crap (in my ever so short love affair with her 'writing').

No suggestion that the Right wanted to string up Krugman, continually called him unhinged, wrong and a dunderhead and continues to do so; rather she is suggesting he was only partially right so therefore still sucky.

I love it; the parsing is worth some praise at least, if it is ruthlessly and transparently dishonest in the end. Well done Megs!! Off the spa with you now!

Yes, the parsing is especially cute. The whole thing is a work of art.
