Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

It's not about policy, it's about "are you on my side." If an American politician (like Obama) adopted the position of the median Jewish voter, he would be attacked as anti-Israel and lose Jewish...

Re: The Unmaking of Israel (Robert Wright & Gershom Gorenberg)

Thankfully, I don't know the first thing about Israel or Palestine, except that Abu Mazen would be a cool name for a band.

Listening to this bh.tv, tho, I get the sense that GG is the voice of...

Re: Iranian Intrigue (Robert Wright & Marcy Wheeler)

Marcy "Playground" Wheeler had some great hits in the 90's. Glad to see she's back.

Re: The More Things Change (Robert Wright & Eli Lake)

"Their own people" is always a neocon talking point. "They are bloodthirsty and homicidal . . . EVEN AGAINST THEIR OWN PEOPLE." I don't understand this point - wouldn't you prefer that Iran kill its...

Re: Von Mises on the Beach (Annie Lowrey & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

I too take von Mises to the beach. Then I place it snugly in the sand and put a drink on it.

Re: Progressive Rock Edition (Ben Smith & Ari Berman)

AB uses admirably few filler and nonce words. Good on him. Nothing weakens an argument as fast as "you know." If I knew why would I be listening to you?

Re: Communitas: The Carceral State (Vesla Weaver & Heather Mac Donald)

Is it really possible to get a degree from a Dept of Inequality? Maybe H-Mac could teach in a Dept of Fatherlessness, Promiscuity, and Inherent Criminality! Depts of Whatever We Don't Like for...

Re: Take Three (Mickey Kaus & David Frum)

I love how Frum wrings his hands about all the wrong turns the Republicans have been taking, as if all that's needed is a better health care plan. Meanwhile, if you record the descent of the...

Re: Take Three (Mickey Kaus & David Frum)

The discussion between 35 and 47 is interesting. BH should have excerpted it. Discussion of immigration and inequality. Too interesting perhaps.

Re: All About Shariah (Robert Wright & Brannon Wheeler)

Re Schweinkrieg, if the Wienerschnitzel was served on purpose, well, that changes everything. Clearly this case then falls under the hate crime laws. This teacher will be lucky to escape jail time. ...

Re: All About Shariah (Robert Wright & Brannon Wheeler)

So why won't Gaffney or Gingrich call for an end to Muslim immigration?
There's a very simple and effective remedy for most of the Muslim terrorism problem, stop immigration from Somalia and other...

Re: Exercises of Insanity (Adam Serwer & Michael Moynihan)

Dieter's comments are interesting. That explains why, when I explained racial gerrymandering to a German political scientist, he was so surprised and shocked. But then he went to one of his American...

Re: Values Added: Immigration (Simone Campbell & Mark Krikorian)

Was Krikorian allowed to finish a single thought? Every time she heard an uncomfortable argument she felt an uncontrollable urge to interrupt.

Re: Values Added: American Apocalypse (Michelle Goldberg & Sally Steenland)

I knew what they were going to say and I wasn't disappointed. Really, who are the apocalyptics? It's always imminent American fascism just as for the neocons it's always Munich 1938.

Re: Science Saturday: Action and Contemplation (Joshua Knobe & Eric Schwitzgebel)

Re: Molybdenum Edition (Tim Noah & Jim Pinkerton)

I don't get what the outrage in the "Jew counting" is. Isn't that what the BLS does? If you want to know how many white gentiles are in the FD in Chicago, who do you call? The BLS. That's what it...

Re: What Kind of a Monster Are You? (Julian Sanchez & Conor Friedersdorf)

I love the moment at the beginning of discussing the Harvard race emails, and both declare that they are not that kind of person . . . the kind of person willing to evaluate the evidence. "Don't look...

Re: The Week in Blog: Politics Ain't Indie Rock (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

Who is Matt Lewis? I visited Politics Daily and couldn't find him. I went to his eponymous website and it was links to clips on tv shows and BH. He appears to be a blogger without a blog.

Re: Science Saturday: Visions of the Future (James Hughes & Annalee Newitz)

Is every show about middle class anxiety? I like my Adorno or Marcuse as much as anyone, but I think the time is past when economics had much to say about pop culture. I'd like to hear what she has...
