Say it ain't so, Bob

I was sorry to hear about your Mom, Mickey. You could hear how important she was to you. Thanks for doing the Diavlog.

And sorry to hear about Blogglngheads 1.0. I've gotten a lot of happiness...

Re: Killing Terrorists (Julian Sanchez & Eli Lake)

Julian's body language and mannerisms say: I am the reincarnation of William F. Buckley. It's fun and I think it suits him.

Re: Starting a Panic (David Corn & James Pinkerton)

Brilliant! Thanks Don Zeko. (and do be careful, they've found that for every year you spend in S. Jersey you lose 1 point from your IQ. There clearly isn't any damage yet but be careful)

Re: Starting a Panic (David Corn & James Pinkerton)

Link to your common sense. Do you truly believe that the sheer amount of economic activity created just by introducing that amount of money would result in no change in the economy, and if there is a...

Re: Starting a Panic (David Corn & James Pinkerton)

There are two Jim Pinkertons on Bloggingheads. One is a first-rate intellect with often fascinating big government Libertarian Hamiltonian ideas. That Pinkerton is also charitable, civil and...

Thumbs down Re: Non-Free Ice Cream Edition (Brad DeLong & Brink Lindsey)

Let's be really honest. Left to our own devices, we would pretty much all call him Boner. Like his politics or not his speakership has been a fail.

Re: The Lives of Others (Ann Althouse & James Pinkerton)

Yea, all true, of course. The pseudo-outraged tone is something she's adopted from a new hero of hers -- Rush Limbaugh. It's a tactic and it's cynically affected. She wears her admiration for...

Unhappy Re: Worldwise: Bin Laden, Pakistan, and America (Saba Imtiaz & Caroline Wadhams)

I'm very interested in listening to this but, after 5 minutes, I cannot.

BHTV, might it be possible to do something else to the audio and try again? It seems like it would be worth the effort.

Re: Enjoyable DV but...

Consider the last few days and particularly the last two days of this show. It's pretty much dedicated only to background and analysis of the Japanese proto-catastrophe.

I'd chuckle but this is deadly serious stuff.

Re: Okay ...

Yep, that's the kind of cool, calm, unflappable guy I want in charge of the reactor in my backyard. "Nothing to worry about. All is well" "Woops" "wait a minute" (should I go get help) "nope I've got...

Re: Underhanded Humiliation Edition (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

Agreed. And I'm curious, sapeye, has Bob made an explicit policy not to have "intellectually dishonest" people on BH?
I gave quite a bit of attention to Ann's assault on Obama because of his DADT...

Re: Civility

This entire discussion has gone South. Not the thread but the whole string of comments about this diavlog has gone awry in an unpleasant and unsavory way. I continued scrolling in search of...

Re: Tease Away (Glenn Loury & Ann Althouse)

rfrobison, I apologize but you're going to be the recipient of this anger even though I've heard the reference many other places:

The references to Obama's knife/gun fight comment are either...

Re: The Sweater Thread (Tim Noah & Jim Pinkerton)

These are two interesting fellows. But with respect, Tim, you MUST STOP MUMBLING. It ruins it. It nearly makes it not worth watching.

Re: Turkey Day Edition (Corby Kummer & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

Yup. Lot's-o-Libertarians lately. I'd like to put this in as uncritical and nonjudgmental a way as possible but most of their diavloguing is most accurately described as -- sorry -- sophomoric.

Re: well, Ann, this gets unpleasanter and unpleasanter

Professor Althouse is extremely clever. The analysis of her exchange could fill many many pages. Bloggingheads readers are smart and if they look to the post she has sent us to, and then read the...

Thanks for the link. I recommend it. It's a compelling read and you, Prof, are a wily writer. I stand by my jaunty denunciation.

I'm not as quick witted as you so it'll take me some time to...

well, Ann, that sure was unpleasant

At 24:00 Althouse repeatedly calls the President a "liar". I guess she gathered this language from old clips of Republican congressman. In any event, it's a strong accusation and not appropriate,...

Re: Quinquennial Edition (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)
