Oh my goodness, I thought this was one of your "less tall" posts and assumed that sentence was a joke. She really wrote that.

Maybe the penny will drop and she will realize that she is wrong and the smart people are right.

Nah.

And I must be missing something because I'm not sure I know what "the penny will drop" means (all the smart snarkists do).

I assume it's another snarkilicious term of ridicule directed at Her Elfness, which is always to the good.

"Dropping the penny" is sort of like seeing the light, in a non-religious sense. It's having an "oh, no duh!" moment. Given Ms. McArdle's rather high opinion of herself, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it to happen any time soon.
