The few times I've wandered into her blog, I've found it dreadfully boring.

You misspelled "enema."

That's not fair. Enemas serve a useful purpose.

Upon further reflection, I confess that my comment is inaccurate on two counts. First, as Walter correctly points out, the comparison is a terrible slight on the noble tradition of colorectal irrigation. Secondly, it makes no sense to refer to Ms. Nuthaus by the name of the very remedy most often indicated for treating her chronic condition.

My bad, as the kids today say.

She's an embarrassment to the University of Wisconsin Law School. Can't imagine the NYU Law School is that proud of her, either.

Stu, that's just asinine. I expected a little more from you compared to the rest of the haters here.

She's just not very bright, that's the problem. I tried reading her blog and lost interest almost immediately. She contradicts herself up one side and down the other and then gets all huffy when somebody calls her on it. Then she claims she's purposely being enigmatic (or enematic, maybe). That sounds like a sixth grader and demonstrates neither intellectual rigor nor integrity.

If I'm going to follow someone's blog, it's because they offer insights, information, and interpretations I can't get somewhere else. Althouse fails on all three counts and leaves the impression she's a defensive, second-class intellect. So if UW or NYU likes to claim they graduate first-class thinkers I doubt they're linking to her page for evidence.

Snoqueen summed her up.
I'm no genius, so when I read a blog and think the person writing it seems like a dumbshit, they probably are.
But she's got a catchy name - "Ann Althouse". Just lucky I guess.
