Argument of the Millennium

Which is the bonobo
 and which is Megan McCardle? 
Megan McCardle at the Atlantic:
For example, like a lot of evolutionary biology critiques, this one leans heavily on bonobos (at least so far). Here’s the thing: humans aren’t like bonobos. And do you know how I know that we are not like bonobos? Because we're not like bonobos. [Emphasis SIC]
Now that is some flashy and skillful arguing. Do you think I might get a prestigious gig blogging for one of the best magazines in the country if I start "proving" my points by repeating my points using italics?
