For my own sanity, I’ve laid off the McCardle reading for a while, but I just wanted to see what kind of nonsense is going on over there. Currently on the front page from the last week:
1.) a Mental Health Break (don’t get your hopes up, it is a video, and not her resignation).
2.) a “both sides are bad” post about the Rand Paul curbjaw incident.
3.) a personal blog spat in which she explains that it is ok that her rhetoric today is diametrically opposed to her rhetoric in 2003 because she apologized or something in 2008.
4.) Another mental health break.
5.) Megan fainting over a blog post by Jon Chait.
6.) Two posts about gentrification and her new house, including her famous bus anecdote.
7.) Navel-gazing about the Supreme Court.
8.) Megan fainting over a mistake a tv host made.
9.) Another mental health break.
The Atlantic is really getting their money’s worth. And I might suggest more mental health breaks. One every three posts doesn’t seem to be working.
