The Five Phases of Reacting to Margaret Wente:
- You (I) read the ridiculous, incendiary Margaret Wente headline.
2. You (I) roll eyes, thinking: Ridiculous, incendiary, clickbait!
3. You (I) click! You (I) are/am a weak, foolish, clickbait-driven creature and probably the reason Buzzfeed exists.
4. You (I) read. No, but, wait …. Really?!!! Nausea ensues.
5. Try to fashion response… Drink. Nah… But, wait, really?!!? Like, for real, for real?! Out. Drink.
