Link to Clay Shirky Essay

A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy (http://www.shirky.com/writings/group_enemy.html)

The link posted by Bjkeefe doesn't work now, for me anyway.

Re: For a different take ...

The video is hilarious. My favorite part is when Thurston says that Trump's cologne 'stinks of racism'.

Robert Wright on Libya

I'm surprised that Robert is so poorly informed about the political science of transition to democracy. Has he never heard the phrase 'resource curse'? Oil wealth especially is a negative. That is...

Re: Obama's Charlotte claim and Dennis Ross's 100k dead

Thanks for the link.

I love the concluding observation:

Right now, the Benghazi bloodbath looks like Obama's mushroom cloud.

Liberals and KSM

Obama said long ago that terror suspects would be tried in 'military commissions' if prosecutors didn't think they could convict them in civilian courts. Liberals seem to be OK with that, but many of...

1956?

Israel invaded Egypt in 1956 and 1967. I've never heard anyone claim that Egypt 'started' the 1956 war. Is that what Eli is saying? (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/34737?in=17:38&out=17:51)

Re: Civility

I don't think so. To the best of my knowledge, it was essentially invented by Rachel Maddow.

Re: Civility

I understand 'teabagger' to be a pejorative term for anyone who supports the Tea Party movement. If you meant something different, I don't think that was clear.

Civility

Are you surprised that some of us on the right are unimpressed by calls for 'civility' from people who won't stop calling us 'teabaggers'?

Re: Bullseye

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was thinking about when Palin published her map, and Giffords herself and other Democrats complained about it. At that time, were Democrats admonishing other Democrats not to...

Re: Bullseye

This is a perfect example of what Tara Davis was saying. The only reason 'the right' has been talking about the map is that 'the left' has been harping on it.

Clink!

No, it's a pet peeve of mine that I've brought up before. Diavloggers often make distracting noises, rustling papers, clicking pens and the like. By all means let's keep nagging them.

Bullseye

It's been pointed out that Democrats have used 'target' maps marked with bullseyes. In light of this, would someone like to explain to me why the complaints about Palin's map are anything but asinine?
