  1. Kinda toothy but shes not too bad.

  2. Wouldn’t’ve made more sense to debate someone who disagreed with Heller?

  3. Wow, one post to degenerate into a discussion of a female pundit’s looks rather than her points. That has to be some kind of record.

    I’m sure it’s not. It took six minutes.

  5. Ms. McArdle got a fairly pissy reaction out of the feminist blogosphere for being pro-gun rights.

    She has not been properly assimilated, apparently.

  6. SugarFree, your link is to this post.

  7. Kinda toothy but shes not too bad.

    Please, Lord, let her have welding skills too?

  8. Wasn’t she the original Annie?

  9. Nigel,

    Thanks.

  10. That link is bad too.

  11. Mr. X,

    Link is good, but now the site is down. I officially give up.

  12. Anti-McArdle links. (Personally, I think she should go with MC Ardle, the kids eat that shit up and she already has on a head-set.)

    American Prospect

    (Wouldn’t American Prospector be more interesting? “Check Out 2008 Hottest Shovels!” 15 Signs That Your Mule Is Cheating On You!”)

  13. Granted, correlation does not imply causation. But it’s a lot easier for a violent, abusive, anger-prone man (or woman) to kill his partner with a gun than without one.

    In today’s news: Australian man kills wife, two grandchildren, with axe.

    I’m going to go ‘way out on a limb and say they might have preferred it if there had been a gun in the house.

  14. If you just want to see the right side, here it is:

    P.S. I’m not being critical, I’m just doing this.

  15. Why is there a woman’s name above the picture of Anthony Kiedis?

  16. Is Megan McArdle really video-blogging from inside a giant artificial womb? It’s disturbing.

    I like McMegan’s anecdotes about being a really tall woman, but I’ve given up reading her blog. Her “because-I-said-so” style of argumentation, combined with her frequent economic blunders and her “I’m not an economist!” defense were just too aggravating to put up with.

    Seriously, there are way better libertarian bloggers out there, why did the Atlantic pick her up?


  17. Seriously, there are way better libertarian bloggers out there, why did the Atlantic pick her up?

    Because she isn’t a libertarian. Kinda hot though.

  18. Welch looks like a guy that’s on Red Eye- not a reason staffer but a supposed comedian.

  19. Shoot, that;;s not who he reminds me of.

    I took my kids to the circus. The whole time there is some dude with blonde hair who runs around chasing this chick. That’s who he looks like in this still.

    He’s a cross between that circus dude and the comedian.

  20. I’ll admit — I haven’t watched it yet. It’s much more fun to look at the pictures and make up my own dialog.

    Matt: “The real issue here is that you still won’t go to dinner with me.”
    Megan: “Ladder theory, Matt. Google it.”

  21. DannyK — If you’d listened you would have heard a story about a certain dinner we had together at 3 am…..

  22. Sooooo….

    When is Reason going to ninja her away from the Atlantic?

  23. Why are these people trying to look like they work for Houston Mission Control?
