Unjustified Presumption of Good Faith

Kathy G. gives Mickey Kaus and Megan McArdle too much credit when she proposes that "[Kaus] needs to let a few facts penetrate his thick skull" and that "McArdle...makes the same kind of mistake Kaus makes." The bad anti-union arguments they make are not due to a want of "facts" and are not a "mistake." Both pundits oppose organized labor in principle; they will never be swayed by empirical evidence because theirs is not an empirically-derived position.

(Kathy G. is no doubt aware of this, and presents her rebuttals for the benefit of impressionable readers.)
