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.
