Denyse Doesn't Fail to Amuse

I'm really enjoying the return of Denyse O'Leary to Uncommon Descent!

One of her recurring fantasies, as RationalWiki puts it, is that "New York Times subscribers [will be] tuning out of print media and tuning on to her bottom barrel blog sites."

Take a look at this one. Why, it's just the thing for New York Times subscribers! Or at least those subscribers who don't care about

  • the bizarre fantasy that "Arun Smith [is] a heroic censor". (Heroic to whom? And why would a university "administration [love] him"?)
  • the raving incoherence that "Today’s journalist thinks you mean that women should be stoned to death for adultery". Who the heck is the "you" here, and what does it refer to?
  • the lack of punctuation at the end of sentences. I guess those periods are just for "legacy media".
Yes, it's amusing. But I really wonder why would anyone in their right mind hire this deluded hack to write anything?
