The Enemy Of My Enemy…Still Makes Me Feel Slimy

Lena Dunham.

On the one hand, she writes indulgent, entitle twaddle like Girls.  Including lines like:

… and the other thing about me is I give zero f***s about anything, yet I have a strong opinion about everything, even topics I’m not informed on.”

Which is simultaneously risibly vacuous and as perfect a sample of Urban Liberal Privilege as you can find.   (The phrase “Zero F****s Given” is a primary indicator of a deeply vapid person).

On the other?  She throws Paul Krugman under the bus.

Talk about a fight where there is no winner, except all the rest of us.

  1. She throws Paul Krugman under the bus.
    Nope. She disses Krugman for repeating common wisdom. Krugman’s problem is that he lies to deceive, and that his economic predictions are incorrect.
    God help you if you are getting investment advice from Nobel winning economist Paul Krugman.

    It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?

    Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear.

    Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

  2. yet I have a strong opinion about everything, even topics I’m not informed on.”

    This is the problem with my generation. Become educated on a topic. Not that I really care about her opinion on international politics or the Israeli/Palestinian issue. It might be good comic relief, or incredibly depressing depending on what she actually answers.

  3. NW: you’re not much into making popcorn, are you? I’m guessing the resulting nausea would cut into sales just a touch. I’m just glad that there wasn’t a rider in the ACA that would require me to watch anything Miss Dunham does.

  4. Someone I know told me that the “Girls” season opener on HBO had Dunham featured in sexual scenes completely nude. I was told the vision was hideous.

  5. Which of the leftist Diva’s sexually abused her little sister; Dunham or Schumer.

    Female SJW’s are all such pigs, I can’t keep them separated.

  6. Banned until she responds on some of the stupid stuff she’s said, GL. And by the way, that would be “smokin’ pot Doggone”, don’t you think?

  7. GL,

    I’ve been holding her comments in moderation.

    I don’t mind that she parrots risible twaddle – her “fact checking” pretty obviously involves a quick Google to see what ThinkProgress or Kos are saying about the subject. I don’t even mind that she wraps the risible twaddle in unearned condescension; if someone is qualified to condescend to me, I’ll let them know. They can feel free to hold their breath as they wait for that.

    What I mind is that with DG it’s never a discussion. She dumps a load of risible twaddle, sniffs about what a fact-checker she is and what a bunch of bobbleheads she thinks the “Mitchketeers” are, and never bothers to see the fine sheen to which her “points” are smashed.

    I put the comment section out here for a discussion. I’ve never banned someone for disagreeing with me (I may cut them more slack than most, in fact), and I never will.

    But nobody gets to treat my comment section as their personal blog.

  8. I’ve gotten over it, I havent missed her. If she didn’t poop and run it’d be different, we all might be annoyed at EI/Emery/whoever but at least he engages in relatively sane dialogue
