Guest blogging
Posted by: Jon Henke on Wednesday, April 02, 2008

I've been guest-blogging this week over at Megan McArdle's blog at The Atlantic. You can read my stuff over there until Megan returns from vacation, at which point I will be exiled from the kingdom.

I'm not sure which is cooler, though: being invited by Megan McArdle to guest blog for her, or having the opportunity to blog at The Atlantic. I hold both in very high esteem.

The commentariat there was delightful, all three days (so far).

The people who regularly comment upon Ms. McArdle’s writings are often remarkably unpleasant and they have not spared her temporary surrogates. I suppose that they’re as happy to castigate the devils that they don’t know as much as the devil that they do know, if not more so.

I think that the set of guest writers that are acting in the regular writer’s stead is quite good, even the two that I have neither read nor heard of before.

Gosh, did you tell her you used to work for a racist by the name of George Allen?

Sorry, Mr. Henke, but you long ago revealed your true beliefs.

Yes, Chris, and he’s so stuffy about it that he betrays the depth of his cynicism.

Who doesn’t love the faux-apology "sorry, but" routine you get from haughty, self-righteous types: "Sawry, Mister Henke, but you long ago revealed your true beliefs."

Same goes for publicly "canceling his subscription" and "recommending that his friends do the same," bemoaning that "It’s sad that he is allowed to post here" and repeating the script: "used to work for a racist by the name of George Allen."

What’s the word for a troll who follows you everywhere?

I figure he’s just a deeply unhappy guy. He’s just throwing BS against the wall to see what sticks. He can’t actually cite anything racist that I’ve ever said or written, but that’s not the point. Accusing other people of racism is just a bit of cathartic self-righteousness that he enjoys. Of course, he knows it is disgraceful behavior, which is why he doesn’t sign his real name.

If I were bothered by that sort of thing, I wouldn’t be a blogger. It’s more embarrassing for the people who behave that way than for the people at whom they are throwing bombs.

MK, far be it from me to defend Henke, but this is just utter nonsense. More so than usual, even from you. Just tossing the charge of ’racist’ out, doesn’t make all your problems go away, even if Obama’s trying the same play.
