Ayn Rand Barbie Speaks

"Of course, predictions are hard, especially about the future."
No doubt McArdle will claim she's making a funny, but her whole column is chock full o'  such boneheaded drivel.

At this point, it's just a matter of time. In some sense, the sexual revolution is over . . . and the forces of bourgeois repression have won.
That's right, I said it: this is a landmark victory for the forces of staid, bourgeois sexual morality. Once gays can marry, they'll be expected to marry. And to buy sensible, boring cars that are good for car seats. I believe we're witnessing the high water mark for "People should be able to do whatever they want, and it's none of my business." You thought the fifties were conformist? Wait until all those fabulous "confirmed bachelors" and maiden schoolteachers are expected to ditch their cute little one-bedrooms and join the rest of America in whining about crab grass, HOA restrictions, and the outrageous fees that schools want to charge for overnight soccer trips.
Either McArdle thinks the "sexual revolution" was a gays-only phenomenon or she thinks that the availability of marriage cannot coexist with the choices not to marry and to fuck without a wedding ring.  And she's apparently never considered that equality of rights is a good thing independent of any desire to exercise such rights.  

What McArdle actually thinks is that marriage is all about the accumulation of wealth and saying "screw you" to losers who are unlike her. 

That's why McArdle has never supported marriage equality, and still does not.  (She concedes the inevitability of marriage equality, but never the immorality of inequality.)  And why she's hopeful that unmarried sluts and their bastards will once again suffer public prejudice and shame.  Because the more people she can say "screw you" to, the happier she is.

McArdle has never supported equality of any kind. It would subvert her position.

If I didn't know better, I'd think this was satire: gays becoming as boring as Ozzie and Harriet. But I know better. Only she can write such crap and expect to be taken seriously.

Replace "marriage" with "life" and you're all set.

"Predictions are hard, especially about the future" -- usually attributed to Lawrence Peter Berra, but leave it to McCardle to not put said attribution in her maunderings. And I'd trust Yog mor than McArgle to analyze this or any other issue.

Anonymous said...

"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future" is attributed to Berra by people who are making stuff up. It's more usually attributed to Niels Bohr, the Danish physicist and innovator in the field of quantum mechanics
(1885 - 1962), and is supposed to be a sardonic comment on the fact that quantum mechanics does not permit the prediction of events but only the assignment of probabilities.

However, Bohr was apparently quoting a well-known aphorism that was first said by the Swiss journalist and humorist Marcus M. Ronner.

The equivalent would be Jonah Goldberg saying "The fact that the Iraq War was a complete boondoggle olny proves how wrong the hippies were about Vietnam."

Honeslty. I cannot make sense of that artcle.

Adrian Luca said...

A commenter over at Wonkette actually claimed that McCardle was one of the smart libertarians, with some interesting economic arguments, and that her use of a quote by someone was yet more evidence of intelligence.

They set the bar so low these days.

You have to give her credit: who else could use the "Yogi Barra" idiom and also toss in a reference to Cromwell. She's obviously someone who thrived in school by being a first rate regurgitator, enough that her lack of first rate thinking didn't get the notice it deserved.
