Sometimes you have to stop and smell the stupidity, so to speak. When analyzing a typical Megan McArdle post, you can seldom uncover all the stupidity and venality in one passing. There will be grave ethical breeches that demand one's attention first. Then come the errors in logic that make your head swim while trying to comprehend McArdle's point. Then you might get to the factual errors, if you are not too busy. Finally, you might go over the poor sentence structure, spelling and punctuation. It's quite time consuming.
Today Fire Megan McArdle points out yet another aspect of McArdle's writing that gives one pause; the company she chooses to keep. McArdle refers to Dan Riehl, as if he is a fellow journalist instead of a misogynist and homophobic moron. Megan likes Michelle Rhee's proposals to destroy teachers' unions, despite the fact that Rhee refuses to discuss who is funding her prospective efforts. She quotes young dolt Conor Friedsdorf, who is even stupider than Megan herself. And she also quotes Dr. Sally Satel, an AEI "scholar" who advocates selling body parts. It's not just for third world countries, says the doc. Idiots, one and all, brought to you by the crown princess of fools.
