Re: Mickey Is Vindicated

harkin:


This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDA9NbPAK8o) is the funniest bit of inspired lunacy I've seen in a while. I'm not sure why, but this seems like the appropriate spot for it.

Re: Mickey Is Vindicated

I'm less and less inclined to offer a point by point rebuttal every time somebody asserts "liberal bias!" There comes a point when defending against a bad faith attack, especially one repeated as...

Good golly. You've never heard of reductio ad absurdum?


Ignoring so-called "junior members" you rank #20 currently. Using the "Active Members" report as a benchmark, that puts you well into...

Go Kathy G!

Kaus Can Suck It (http://thegspot.typepad.com/blog/2008/08/mickey-kaus-can.html)!

I think she nails the heart of this matter.

Re: Mickey Is Vindicated

This looks like it's going to become a long back-and-forth. If it does, so be it, it's a good conversation.



That really not what I'm saying. My point is that as long as only the Enquirer is...

Re: Mickey Is Vindicated

Well, no. The "big miss," if you like, is taking seriously a story that's only appeared in the Enquirer. The "truth" of this particular story isn't related to anything I've had to say about it. ...

Re: Mickey Is Vindicated

Despite the inability of a subset of conservatives to distinguish between the NYT and publications like the Enquirer, a distinction which it seems fair to say harkin misses, as well: the sourcing of...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

What the hell are you going to do with yourself if he wins, even despite the ocean of bile in your stomach? Four or even eight years of EastWest/Eeyore bellyaching about Obama is greater punishment...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Schafer's not really making an entirely consistent case. Bobby G's good summary:
really isn't consistent with Shafer's conclusions, either. I think the bottom line is that if they have something...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

We can dance around the language issues here, but it avoids the point. What's important for me in this context is: When the Enquirer pushes a narrative, is there any reason to take them seriously? ...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

By any reasonable standard of credibility the data you listed adds up to zero. A liar who's occasionally correct doesn't get credit for the random accidents of truth.

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

I plead guilty to some inconsistency here. But I'll add two things. As an atheist "Rest In Hell" is something of a null construction as far as I'm concerned. I'm not sure I'd wish an eternity of...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

look, I created the "Rest In Hell" thread. I stand by the sentiment, too. Jesse Helms was a contemptible bastard who I blame for a lot of misery and a legacy of shit politics that will take...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Except that it's pure allegation. Until some evidence is on the table it's an ugly smear that victimizes Elizabeth Edwards more than any other person. You're applying a standard in this case that I...

Yeah I noted the mistake.

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

You're assuming facts not in evidence, as I pointed out elsewhere. The existence of a story in the Enquirer is not prima facie evidence of what's being implied by the story, even if - and I've...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Not knowing the backstory - the Enquirer's presumptive, implicit narrative is just speculative - without knowing how much of the situation was engineered (the Enquirer sure as hell isn't above cash...
