Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

Friday, June 25, 2010


We seem to have reached an impasse. How am I to mock libertarians if they actually, really, truly Go Galt? There has been only one post from the guest-bloggers at Megan McArdle's site since Wednesday and it was neither dim-witted nor offensive.

I miss McArdle. Sure, Jonah Goldberg is still an idiot, but he's been churning out the same crap for so long that he's become rote. By the way, Jonah, DC spends around $9,000-$10,000 per student per year, not $25,000. Where does your number come from?

What's that, Jonah? You think you and your fellow intellectuals are what?
Is It Just Me? [Jonah Goldberg]
Or has the Corner been on an upswing in quality of late? It could always use more collegial debate and banter, but this has been a pretty good week.
No, it's just you.

Jourmalism note: The Reuters piece to which you link uses the word "report" multiple times, but never bothers to mention the SOURCE of same.

Thanks, I should have noticed that. The Washington Post said it was about 13,000 (two years after my data). It's hard to find reliable data.

Considering the quality of writing and analysis at the National Review in general, one could feasibly argue that "up" is the only direction it could go, really.

Jonah: "I'll never learn" Snorklpf! (that's me, laughing)

" could feasibly argue that "up" is the only direction it could go, really..." Sadly, No. They never seem to hit rock bottom. It's a mystery.
