Re: Micro vs Macro evolution; A recognized distinction?

BJ shows up just in time.

Why do right wingers insist on talking about science rather than taking the time to learn the basics behind what they're actually talking about? Because it's easier to...

Re: Bomb Iran? (Flynt Leverett & Reuel Gerecht)

I nominate Reuel Gerecht for the Bill O'Reilly Award for Loud, Obnoxious Bullying During a So-Called Conversation. I mean, WOW.

Re: It's Hot (Tim Fernholz & Conn Carroll)

Well! Thanks so much for coming. It's been great seeing you, but the hour is getting late after all, and the wife and I should really be turning in right about now. Psst! Honey... Lock the door when...

Re: The Table (Noah Millman & Ross Douthat)

Noah and Ross are both intelligent, insightful people, and I mean no disrespect, but they're pretty much alone on "where Pixar's gone wrong." _Up!_, _Wall*E_, _Toy Story 3_ were all heralded by film...

Re: Full Disclosure (Dayo Olopade & Noah Millman)

I bet you can't find a single person on the planet earth who has any opinion whatsoever about "amensty."

Re: mean old Frum

Do you really think that? Because I think he was being respectful, while simultaneously tearing Goldberg a new a**hole, which is the best way to do it.

I'm not in love with Frum or his opinions....

Re: mean old Frum

I don't get this. So he's a "devoted state-building neocon"--he's entitled to be. It's not what I want from America, and it may not be what you want, but it's his perspective and it's not batshit...

Re: A Seinfeld Diavlog - or a Diavlog about nothing

Well, no. He's worried that talk show conservatives are utterly extremist in their rhetoric--to a dangerous degree--and that they have influence on huge numbers of people. And he's worried that this...

Re: It's Fun To Be Goo (Ann Althouse & Matt Welch)

Libertarians tend to make me a little batty, but I gotta hand it to Welch. He's very reasonable, very listenable, and considered.

The less that can be said about what Althouse "believes," on the...

Re: The Week in Blog: Unbaked Cake (Bill Scher & Melissa Clouthier)

I tried to get all the through it, but could only take so much of Clouthier's giggling amusement at the "squawking Left." I feel for the child Melissa says she was "home schooling."

Re: Gitchy Goo Edition (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

Re: Goldfarb?! WTF?

Hard to describe? Jesus, it's easy, Don. Unbearably arrogant, perpetually disgruntled and weary, disdainful, supercilious. His every gesture screams, "Why do I have to suffer so many fools, God?" (By...

Re: He's Baaack (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

I'm also glad that he did not back down on the Behe dialogue. Like Glenn I was at amazed at the closed-minded, intolerant, PC reaction to his discussing Darwin with Behe

Re: It's Not Like How We Used to Do It In the Park (Oliver Wang & Eli Lake)

Here's the thing, Omar. I get a lot of your points, especially the ones about "indie" and "underground" hip hop. You are so right about that. It's sad that the better stuff doesn't sell more.

Re: It's Not Like How We Used to Do It In the Park (Oliver Wang & Eli Lake)

Here's the thing: yes, other art forms glorify violence. But generally speaking, when a movie, say, does nothing but glorify violence, I would deem it a shitty movie. When it has something to say...

Re: Apollo Theater: Healthcare Reform Edition (Don Zeko & freedomforall)

Terry Ann says she just has an ideological position about government not getting involved in the marketplace. What she never does say is WHY she takes that position.

Ideological positions are...
