Now They're Just Trolling Me


From the Manhattan Institute:

What is the future of conservatism? Which ideas should it champion? What policies should it embrace? Since the 2012 election, a number of young, leading-edge journalists, scholars, and authors have been engaged in a rich conversation about these questions. Deeply versed in the nuances of policy, they have offered and debated big-think suggestions and ideas in response to the challenges facing our nation. Please join the Manhattan Institute on March 11, 2014, for a roundtable discussion, moderated by David Brooks of The New York Times.
Josh Barro, National Correspondent, The New York Times
Yuval Levin, Founding Editor, National Affairs
Megan McArdle, Columnist, Bloomberg View
Avik Roy, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute; Opinion Editor, Forbes
Reihan Salam, Contributing Editor, National Review
MODERATOR: David Brooks, Columnist, The New York Times
The punchline?
Stay tuned. We are experiencing technical difficulties.
Boy howdy.

Deeply versed in the nuances of policy,

Rich, these folks are as nuanced as a chainsaw buzzing through the Mona Lisa.

"Big Think suggestions"? Like starving children of the poors?

I happen to like Josh Barrow. He's not half bad at all and certainly shouldn't be lumped in with the rest of those mental midgets.

The slogan of the Manhattan Institute: "Turning intellect into influence."

Step 1. Acquire intellect.

Step 2. Strangle it.

Yes. Josh Barro is OK. Avik Roy and Reihan Salam are certifiable sociapaths and liars. The rest I have no idea.

Googled Meghan McArdle and found this wiki entry.

**In 2012, David Brooks called McArdle one of the most influential bloggers on the right**

So she must be a total idiot.

Good morning, Mr. Glass.

"What is the future of conservatism? Which ideas should it champion? What policies should it embrace?"

Note: the answer to the first question will completely contradict the answers to the second and third questions.

Enjoy your day.

Are you sure that's not a verbatim transcript of the entire panel?
