Can You Imagine?

Worst sentence ever written in journalism?

The nerve of a typist who has to clarify herself every couple of wks. calling someone else on bad journalism or typing. Or anything else.

This gig is sapping my non-existent soul. At this point I can barely muster outrage.

We have looked into the abyss of her brain, and now the abyss is us.

Yeah, it's worn kind of thin. The stupid will always be with us. I have finally come to terms with the fact that Obama really is going to kill brown people and wasn't just pretending for the plebes. I don't think I can get any more cynical.

I'd threaten to move to Canada, but they're prolly just as stupid there, aren't they?

I love the comment left by "kstills" at 2:53:

"Hehe, Megan.

You must have a thick skin to put up with the trolls here.

Keep up the good work, you're always a pleasure to read."

That's funnier than Megan calling out another writer for bad output. Thick skin? Megan? The "journalist" who could be a psychological test subject for defective personality disorders that cause a person to go shitcanned insane when anyone suggests they're less than perfect?

Mark Steyn's pet trolls are mostly Canadian, so yes. All the Canadians I know are fantastic people, so that was a surprise.

It's amazing that McArdle can simultaneously be so arrogant that she thinks we want to know about her crock-pot purchase, and so insecure that she can't tolerate any criticism.
