"What I tell you three times is true."
...a very complicated discussion I'm not prepared to have right now.I believe it's the first time Megan wrote something I agree with, although I'd drop "right now" entirely and put in something along the lines of "ever." It's cute, though, how she constantly admits that she is unable to argue certain topics or that she doesn't know the answers to various economic, historical, and social questions and yet she still gets paid for a job that should involve research...and by "cute", of course, I mean "infuriating."And in the same post I couldn't help but pick up on the tone with which she mentioned historians being paid to record the oral histories of sharecroppers under the New Deal. It's proof enough for just how insignificant and irrelevant she considers the issues and concerns of the "lower classes."
She's less chummy than Jonah, but way less oblivious to the failure of an argument. A sad combination.
It's hard to picture a world in which Jonah's sharper than McArdle. Megan should outsource her writing. It would be better for everyone involved.
Megan should outsource her writing. It would be better for everyone involved.Except that her role is to be "better" for SOME people, not everyone. Besides, think about it...would even the most craven work-for-hire be able to stomach working her particular room?I'm pretty good at fiction, but even my imagination couldn't produce a "believable" or "moral" Megan.
Neither could I.
