Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy

I always like Christopher Hitchens’ assertion that he knew an enemy when he saw one. In a world where many humanitarian, or environmental, atrocities seem to have their foundations in our societal tendency to react irrationally to our fears, Jenny McCarthy is an enemy to reason if ever there was one. It is easy to imagine her, in another age, pointing at someone she was afraid of (or didn’t understand) and screaming ‘witch’, but in fairness I should root my examples of her character in the many factual episodes she affords us (like in the excellent piece from The New Yorker I paste below). One excerpt I liked was: ‘When people disagree with her views on television, McCarthy has been known to refute scientific data by shouting “bullshit.”’

I also put links below to a website called ‘Jenny McCarthy Body Count’ and a video of her utterly intolerable recent behavior towards Bill Nye.
