Re: What "A modest proposal" is

Re: What "A modest proposal" is

Re: Worldwise: Gulf Risks (Habiba Hamid & Bernard Haykel)

So Bernard is broadly skeptical of the US getting more involved (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/39723?in=08:38&out=10:33) in the Gulf's security. While Habiba signals agreement, the skepticism she...

Re: Worldwise: Addicted to Fudge (Henry Farrell & Alex Massie)

Kudos to Henry & Alex for doing yeoman's work covering the terrifying/boring (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/26/opinion/euro-zone-death-trip.html?_r=1&hp) crisis in Europe. Also, this is probably the...

Re: The Faculty (Benjamin Ginsberg & Naomi Schaefer Riley)

Maybe when he complains about their meddling in his syllabus, but he doesn't just stop there. When he says that every third administrator should be fired, he basically is saying "You guys sod off. My...

Re: The Faculty (Benjamin Ginsberg & Naomi Schaefer Riley)

Interesting what low regard Prof. Ginsberg holds for the people who mail his paychecks, manage his health care, stock his textbooks, recruit his customers, disburse scholarships to subsidize his...

Re: All-Texas Edition (Erica Grieder & Evan Smith)

When it comes to running-mates, isn't Romney/Perry pretty obvious, a la JFK/LBJ?

Re: Worldwise: Live From Norway (Hans-Inge Lango & Eli Lake)

You are truly a brave soul to stand up so boldly in an online message-board and self-righteously condescend to a whole nation for how it responds to a tragedy you saw on TV.

Re: Life is Complicated in Lebanon (Elias Muhanna & Mona Yacoubian)

Is there a reason political alliances in Lebanon all seem to be named after dates in early March? Any astrologers out there have insight into Piscean political movements?

Re: Worldwise: Turkey and the Arab Spring (Steven A. Cook & Mustafa Akyol)

The quotes around policy are well-placed. Just because that's what will be said from podiums doesn't mean that anyone is putting any effort behind it. In the early 1990s there was a good bit of...

Re: True Confessions (Heather Hurlburt & Eli Lake)

Eli is correct. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/36372?in=02:45&out=04:31) National interests are changing and contingent. Nations should constantly be re-examining their commitments and alliances....

Re: Uprising in Egypt (Heather Hurlburt & Eli Lake)

Re: Under the Wreckage (Will Wilkinson & Ann Althouse)

What is sad about this (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/29698?in=11:38&out=12:08) is that it's almost certainly causally related to the differences in their respective blogs' traffic. I sure would...
