McArdle: "Facts I Did Not Know"
TBogg: "We're gonna need a bigger internet."
Even so. If you want a break from reality, catch McArdle in the process of demonstrating how much her reach-- as TBogg points out (though he's funnier) -- exceeds her grasp.
Update: TBogg reviews McArdle (First we get rid of all the sick people. Then we won’t need insurance. Profit!) "I think, after this, we can officially designate Megan McArdle as the America's Stupidest Blogger™."
Brad at Fire Megan McArdle: "Note that every single number she came up with to support her argument was hypothetical, and based on willful ignorance of reality..."
Susan of Texas: "A hypothetical is not a statistic. A statistic is a fact that can be verified, not a guess, and McArdle just admitted she made a guess. That guess was the entire basis for her argument against health care reform."
