Re: Class of 2008 Commencement Edition

Dude,
You're funny.



If McCain and Bush are so different, how come you love them both? I will admit feeling enormous sympathy for you, and people like you. You've invested so much in Bush for...

Re: Rescuing Democracy

As long as we're going to critique style, can I ask that you stop using underlining for emphasis on web pages? You may not have thought about this, but every time you underline something for...

Re: The Confederate States of America on Wikipedia

What would motivate someone to say that Kentucky and Missouri seceded from the Union and joined the Confederacy -- four events that never actually occurred?

I know it's a sore spot for...

The Confederate States of America on Wikipedia

I'm a big fan of Wikipedia and think it is a great resource for the human race, especially for children, who now have at their fingertips the collected wisdom of the human race.

But I lost a...

Re: John Yoo's Haircut

Good points, and I also found the diavlog very interesting. I should have been more clear: I didn't mean they talked too long, just that there was only one basic premise on each side, and regardless...

Re: Glenn's self-professed "bizarre neurological condition."

Thanks for posting that. Proving once again that facts have a well known liberal bias! (-;

Re: Glenn's self-professed "bizarre neurological condition."

The "special status" of protection from government interference is precisely the "special status" that Glenn asserts. A lot of people are getting all hung up on this semantic point, I think because...

Re: Glenn's self-professed "bizarre neurological condition."

I guess you think Megan falls into the "inform the public" camp, despite her repeated assertions that the media has no responsibility to inform the public.




Glenn's view isn't narrow, and he...

Re: John Yoo's Haircut

I'm not sure what else Glenn could have said, or how he could have argued the point better than he did. Really, it's not a topic that requires 78 minutes of discussion: There's just one basic...

Re: One More Thing

Yeah, those are the same thing. The freedom from regulation is the special status.

Re: One More Thing

Exactly -- well said.

Or, if I may substitute another analogy: It's as if you were to have an argument about the Kennedy assassination and who was responsible and the person you are arguing with...

Re: One More Thing

To me it's not about Glenn or Megan's performance in debate, but the merits of the ideas themselves. But since you raised it, I think Glenn's performance was excellent.

Re: John Yoo's Haircut

It seems a few people are responding to Glenn's criticism of the press by granting him -- as you do above -- draconian and authoritarian positions that he explicitly rejects. His argument would be...

Re: John Yoo's Haircut

I missed the part where he said journalists are totally unaccountable.

That's funny, too, since he spends the entire diavlog holding them to account. It's Megan who says journalists are totally...

Fifty two words (not 12, not 150)

Re: Jesus Junk

Bob is unfavorably disposed towards Christianity? When? I always thought he was pretty deferential and respectful towards it.

Re: New Blogger Pairing Suggestions

You know who would be great?

Juan Cole, University of Michigan history professor (http://www.juancole.com/).

I don't know who you could pair him with, though. I suspect many conservatives...
