Blogging (Off With Her) Heads

Wow, I always disliked Ann Althouse on BloggingHeads, but I never had a really good reason until now.

In Saturday's edition she comes off as the Red Queen to poor Garance Franke-Ruta's Alice, completely going off on her for no reason whatsoever. The worst part is that based on her blog, she seems to think that she was simply out-duelling her in a debate. Because, yelling and throwing a tantrum is a debating technique? Is this what they teach at the Wisconsin Law School? It's like biting off the other guy's ear in a boxing match.

Anyway, she should be banned from BloggingHeads until she apologizes, and the University of Wisconsin should think twice about their hiring decisions. I'll bet her students got an earful on Monday (hopefully it's Spring Break there so they've all escaped her wrath).

Andrew Sullivan has a bunch of good links on his Blog.
