Such a Journalist

Amusing fact of the day:

Our muse just "investigated" the credit crisis by applying for credit cards! Yes, that's real behind the scenes work there gumshoe!

You might say "Well, some journalists would only apply for a single credit card, so MM really is going the extra mile" to which I rejoinder "Actually, this moron only MEANT to apply to one but accidentally applied to three because she's retarded."

"She can't be that retarded, can she?" you ask. Well, yes, and also, she forgot that you shouldn't be checking out lots of new lines of credit while you're looking to buy your first ever house.

Our intrepid journalist: stupid enough to do things of no merit to anyone and harm herself in the process. Natural selection at its finest.

Seriously? This idea would have been laughed out of any editorial meeting at my college newspaper (though it should be said, it was a pretty damn good college paper). The Atlantic is well and truly fucked.

"Actually, I accidentally applied for three, which goes to show that you don't have to be too bright to be a blogger."

You've been showing us that for years, Megan.

Accidentally apply to two additional credit cards? How does someone even do that?!

And she admits it. Which is stupider--doing it, or admitting it?

Didn't someone once apply the label "weapons grade stupid" to McBrainless? Truer words were never spoken.

No, she's the one that uses the term "weapons-grade" incessantly.

It's weapons-grade repetitive.
