You Have To Be Kidding Me

You can try to stay away from Megan McArdle, for your own mental health if nothing else, but fate conspires against you constantly. She is absolutely incredible. She has utterly no sense of self-awareness and no shame.

It's an old joke. Does she really think there's anyone who hasn't heard it alreay?

I'm finally on Twitter & scanning Megan's endless cattiness is just depressing. It could be worse - she isn't putting anything up at The Daily Beast.

Stephen Ohlemacher is running crap about Social Security in over 700 newspapers & doesn't seem to realize that he's a tool.

She said she'll be posting there starting Sept. 4, I think. Lucky us.

Miss Information would be a better handle for her.

What's the percentage when her statistics are not included?

Anyone notice that her twit bio says she is "A Blogger at The Atlantic"? Modesty and candor should oblige her to update the claim.

I thought they were hypotheticals.

Then that makes it safe to say 87% of the appliances and gadgets in her kitchen are misused, disused, or abused? The remaing are the microwave (Hot Pockets!) and the fridge/freezer, for the boxed wine and insta-food. I hope she recipe blogs at Newsweek. It will be the last step in their short march to total lack of credibility.

87% of what Arglebargle writes is "made up" garbage. The rest is just regurgitated garbage.

I hope somebody at Newsweek tells her very soon that the sous vide and Thermomix foods are out and fresh food simply prepared is in.

I am hoping we'll get more postings about the dreamy excellence of Paul Ryan. I don't think many midwestern readers of Newsweek want to hear that Granny is moving in with them because her Social Security was cut. And that they are now responsible for her medical insurance and bills.

Ryan will force the Democrats to support SS and Medicare more than they would otherwise. Heh.

Politics is awesome. Religion hides its neediness behind piety, but politicians lay it all out for everyone to see. By their ideologies you shall know them.

I would loooove to see McArdle getting the treatment on one of the 50 or 60 Gordon Ramsay shows on the air.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics, none of which I ever use.

Lurking Canadian -

Someone tweeted exactly that back to her (click the link Susan provided to see).

Susan - I was in one of those fancy kitchen supply stores yesterday. They were selling some sous vide gadget advertised as "groundbreaking" and sold at an obscenely high price. The first thing I thought was gee, so groundbreaking my great-grandmother used to do it in Ireland with a cauldron, cheap cuts of meat, and what little coal they could afford. The second thing I thought was if McArdle doesn't have one of these, she's saving up for one.
