Synecdoche Synecdoche (http://www.bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/10221?in=00:15:16&out=00:15:33) Obama might be a covert Marxist but you won't catch him saying Synecdoche when the mike is on.

Better synecdoche dingalink (http://www.bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/10221?in=00:15:20&out=00:15:31). I guess I loves me some synecdoches.

Reihan looks like he's taking orders over the phone, with his big ole notepad.

I bow down. It's only been a couple of years since I learned not to say "SIN-ik-dosh."

I'm partial to onomatopoeia.

While looking to flush the rancor engendered by the recent PinkerCorn, I decided to have another listen to this diavlog.

This one represents an aspect of BloggingHeads that I like best, and an area where it stands out, compared to the usual political jibber-jabber one hears elsewhere. Less mindless partisanship, more awareness of, and respect for, the other side. Less rigid clinging to the predominant direction of spin, more actual analysis and nuance. Less horserace, more issues.

I'm all for a good battle between good versus evil every now and again, but what makes me a loyal fan to BH.tv is diavlogs like this.

In particular, I proclaim that this country needs more conservatives like Reihan. I'm glad he's becoming a frequent diavlogger. I hope he becomes a regular.

Another terrific 'vlog, reflecting the best of Blogging Heads, as others have already noted.

I completely agree. Reihan is great.

My heart goes "pit-a-pat" for onomotopoeia.

Reihan is delightful -- love the way his eyebrows almost count as extra diavloggers in their own right.
And I love his goofy Youtube videos.
Oh yeah -- he's also a smart, reality-based conservative who growls not, neither does he spin.
