So very shrill

I've been enjoying early blogger Faisal Jawdat's new venture, The Shrill Blog. Look at how many different people from different expertises and political philosophies are pissed off with this incompetent failure of an administration!

When people call you 'shrill', it's to avoid your argument. "You're shrill" is meant to imply "you're wrong" without going to the effort of coming up with any actual reasons that you are.

That's all they can do, though, because the shrill people are right.
