At least Meghan McCain’s verbs and subjects agree

I’m guessing that the Daily Beast doesn’t have a copy editor, otherwise this wouldn’t be noteworthy, not that it is anyway.

From Meghan McCain’s recent column:

Everyone from Jessica Simpson to Tyra Banks, Oprah and Hillary Clinton has fallen victim to this type of image-oriented bullying.

UPDATE: In case it isn’t clear, I’m giving McCain kudos for correct grammar, not saying that it’s incorrect.

Which reminds me of this tshirt I’ve been meaning to buy:

bad grammar makes me [sic]

    Subject: At least MEGHAN McCain’s…
    Body: From MEGAN McCain’s…
    Pick one.

    And I don’t see the problem with her grammar. I’m not trying to defend her, I’m just saying that “everyone has” sounds grammatically correct. If you eliminate the prepositional phrase “from…” then it would still make sense.

    I know, I don’t get it.

    No, I was saying her grammar was correct in this instance. I was giving her a kudos.

  3. AZ Says:

    I knew there was something I didn’t get. Sorry.

  4. Catherine Says:

    I’m not that impressed. There’s still a false range in that sentence.
