A Thousand Wordsworths

From the fabulous commie atheist, who linked to it while commenting @ Sadly, No!Pajamas Media, the perfect example of a successful business model.

I'm surprised you would attack her like that. Is there no sisterhood between gonks?

Admittedly, she is not, like yourself, a huge fucking gonk, but still is still a gonk. Prick her and she bleeds pure gonk.

PS - Looks like it's how many days of short covering now?


fucking clueless gonk

She may be a gonk, but she's MY gonk.

So learn some manners.

PS.....can I borrow a few bucks? I'll pay it back once I take Douthat's job.

I wish you liked her more - nothing hotter than interacial gonk-on-gonk action.

I thought everyone likes interacial gonk-on-gonk action?

These are troll comments currently being left on what is, as of now, Megan's latest post, NoT. She's so lazy that stuff this vile is allowed to sit on her blog for hours, even days. What ever happened to the cracking Atlantic interns that were supposed to take care of this kind of thing?

I don't usually like it when people attack women for their looks, but bloody hell, she really did look like crap in that video. Susan wrote somewhere she should have hired a stylist. Forget that much. A little bit of face powder and a hair brush was all she needed for improvement. And that jacket makes her shoulders look like they belong on a linebacker. This isn't me being catty - McArdle's not an unattractive woman, but you'd think she'd take a little care when making an appearance on camera.

Not to be looksist or anything, but if you know you're going to have a camera pointed at you in the immediate future, wouldn't you want to make sure you don't look like you just rolled out of bed?

Mr. Wonderful said...

The jacket doesn't bother me. It's that orange light at the top of her head, which is prob. from the less-than-expert techs at whatever home-made studio they shot that in.

Also, I was surprised to catch a glimpse of her hair hiding behind her head. Why exile it back there? For "seriousness"?

I say all this--and I'm a straight man! Oh never mind.

Susan of Texas said...

I really hope poeple don't keep saying vile things. I want her ideas to be discredited. Professionalism is part of that.

Heh--I'd be really pissed if one picture could discredit her where thousands of words about her work could not.

Susan of Texas said...

In other words, I'm willing to bring up her appearance, but only in professional situations. I wouldn't want to act like a Republican, who can't see a liberal woman without calling her smelly and hairy.

I don't mind walking up to the line and sticking my toe on it, but I don't want to go over the line.

clever pseudonym said...

Exactly, Susan. This isn't a photo swiped from her personal Flickr account or anything. This is how she presented herself for public consumption while expecting to have her ideas taken seriously. The horrible lighting and backdrop didn't help, either. It's kind of why I'm hesitate to use the word "professional" in conjunction with that video. Those Pajamas TV things are a joke.

I'm not going to name names or anything, but there are quite a few bloggers out there who really should have said "You know what, I'm just not suited for a visual medium."

Retardo said...

Why does she have that giant ladybug on the top of her head? Does it serve some type of purpose? Is it some sort of secret code like Bill Clinton's ties?

clever pseudonym said...

It's the aforementioned bad lighting glaring off the top of her head, Retardo.

Anonymous said...

Fuck you, Clever Pseudonym. She does too have a ladybug on top of her head, not a lighting issue. Watch the fucking video you douchebag. BTW, I think that MM is HO.

McArdle comes out looking like Alfalfa for some reason.
