The article shows how she and the New York Times live in this sort of parallel universe where you don’t have to actually do anything to be considered important , you just have to have the right labels attached to yourself . Every article about her throws out the same labels : “ Ivy League graduate; Oregon Duck runner; Olympic Athlete ; film maker; roll model to young girls.” It doesn’t matter that her writing style is that of a 7th grader, she never really accomplished much as a runner , her film was a joke or that there probably aren’t any girls holding her up as a roll model, having the labels is enough for the New York Times.


Man, I agree with what you're saying; and acknowledge that she's a self promoting farce. However, you've really got to be careful throwing around insults about writing style, etc. when you've got so many grammatical mistakes within your own paragraph. It kind of makes you look silly, and definitely undermines any point that you're trying to make. Take that for what you will.


Before I went to Dartmouth my vocabulary was small. Now it is big.
