Shorter Megan

The Romance of Teaching:

Susan has handled the meat of this post, I'd just like to point to and chortle at Jane Galt writing the following;

What blows me away about this, beyond the obvious--20 years?--is that an educated person spent that 20 years reading romance novels. All bad genre fiction is formulaic, of course, but...
but she's an elitist and prefers Ayn Rand glibberish, or Proust, of course. Megan clearly enjoys having her intellect challenged. (Just in case Megan reads this, I'm not mocking Proust there.)

Forecasters on Stimulus:

This is one of those posts that amount to genius work in psych-ops. Megan, who we all know has gotten every major issue of her lifetime wrong, does not believe in listening to the carefully researched predictions of trained experts who show a remarkable degree of agreement because they do not mesh with her ideological biases have not always been right.
You see, in order to learn from making mistakes, you have to make as many of them as possible and build up a critical mass. Megan and Bill Kristol are on a race to enlightenment which will revolutionize human evolution.
It's brilliant tho, because the proper response to a post like this from a person like Megan is an incoherent stream of profanities, which she can safely ignore as mean and uncouth and just not how civil Villagers do it.

I'm not questioning the value of reading romance novels; I have enjoyed a good bodice ripper from time to time. What I'm questioning is how you could read something that is essentially the same book with the names changed over and over and over 7 hours a day for 20 years. That's all.

Somewhere in the world, there is a person who enjoys doing something that Megan would not. No wonder the teacher was fired.

The first minute I surfed to this incredible hilarious Yes We Scam! B.S. We Can Believe In! Obama Approval Plummets page it occurred to me that Fire Megan McArdle's commentators totally have to be able to comment on this link!
