How to Say "STFU, You Dumbass" Nicely.

Putz piggybacks Megan McArdle's contention that "the CBO just came out and said that the health care reform was slated to cost $115 billion more than they said it would."

Ezra Klein's response, a miracle of restraint, is hilarious. It must've been taxing to write it without the aide of such words as stupid, wrong, wanker, etc.

Megan McArdle has a post up saying that health-care reform is "already at least a hundred billion dollars in the hole." That's really not right[.]

 Pretty sure our side of the blogosphere would be wise to heed the advice of a Klein commenter:

"Megan McArdle has a post up saying "_________." That's really not right."

That right there is about as close to a universal truth as one can get. It doesn't matter what fills in the blank.
