Re: at least this is new!

More on this story from Kevin Drum (http://motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2012/01/fame-and-glory-are-mine-i-am-finally-daily-show), who feels he was taken out of context by TDS's graphic:

Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece

This is his problem, by the way. He's come up with plenty of ways to deserve the RINO label over the years without actually doing anything to make lefties not hate him.

EDIT: one of his problems,...

Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece

Why? I'm very confused about what Gingrich's value as a general election candidate is supposed to be. Other party actors whose help he will need all hate and distrust him, he's got a list of gaffes,...

If you're trying to get elected, isn't the customer/voter always right?

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

I am shocked, shocked, to see Sugar simplifying, taking out of context, or simply lying about someone else's words in order to insult Liberals. I would never have expected such behavior from a...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Pretty much. I don't think that putting an obvious non-starter like single payer on the table would have had a positive effect on the ultimate outcome, but the answer to that question is so hard to...

Re: Iowa (David Weigel & Benjy Sarlin)

Didn't we have a big stupid fight about military metaphors in political rhetoric last year? Do we really have to do this again? Yes, Matthews needs to take a deep breath and keep some perspective,...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Six on one hand, half dozen on the other. I'm inclined to cut the guy a break.

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Those mathematical equations make up a model that attempts to recreate the behavior of a real economic system in the way that a map recreates the land it describes. The model will make predictions...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I agree with Twin that your approach is the reasonable one, and I get your frustration, but I still find it very irritating that Obama doesn't get any credit here for the ACA, for saving the auto...

Don't such rhetorical questions work better when they don't have simple, obvious answers?

Re: Iowa!

Ah, good point (Why do I say this as if I already knew? I read that about three hours and had never heard about it before in my life?). I guess when the actual benefits of winning are all intangibles...

Ok, I've got a genuine question: can you get a recount in a primary or caucus? If so, has this ever happened?

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

He certainly has, but I'd be pretty careful about using Glenn as a barometer for the left in general. Like Wonderment, he is very professionally and emotionally invested in the issues where Obama has...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I wish we had better information on this front. I think that disagreement about the nature of Paul's supporters underlies a lot of the disagreement between Wonderment and Ohreally and the anti-Paul...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

And around and around we go. This just seems to me to be another example to put in my file for instances of Libertarians afflicting the afflicted and comforting the comfortable.

I guess we should have a thread, right? NYT has Santorum and Romney neck and neck, with Paul lagging by a percentage point or two at the moment. Thoughts? Angry rants about those damn corn farmers...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Well ok, I'll stipulate that people converted to pacifism by Ron Paul will remain pacifists indefinitely. How many people are converted, and how many of his supporters were already disaffected...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

It's a pretty silly exercise to think about how Ron Paul would actually behave in office, seeing as he can't possibly be elected.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

That requires the caveat that the president not care at all about reelection or the fate of his political allies in congress. Sure, a President Paul would formally have all kinds of power to change...

Re: Predictions for 2012?

If we're discussing the 1948 election in the Deep South, should the word 'vote' have scare quotes around it?
