Re: Al Gore Too

Wow, a complaint that was dismissed years ago because there was no evidence. Next you should post that youtube guy who said he smoked crack with Obama then had gay orgies.

edit: as a sidenote,...

Re: Republicans and Their Violent Rhetoric

I can't believe I'm the first one to post a Sharron Angle quote here.
"I hope that’s not where we’re going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking...

Re: Adios Mchrystal (or McChrystal)

Really? Maybe it's my fault for avoiding the worst of the right wing sites, but I got the impression it was gone during the Right's pre-emptive victory lap over Scott Brown and the death of ObamaCare

Re: Adios Mchrystal (or McChrystal)

Wow, mea culpa. I didn't expect Obama to view McChrystal's actions as negatively as he must have.

Thoughts:
*I wonder if this means the return of the Obama-as-tyrant meme and the waning of the...

Re: Adios McCrystal

InTrade gives 70% chance of McChrystal being dumped. I'd take those odds, if I had money and registering for it wasn't such a complete hassle (and, from the impression I got, borderline illegal). I...

Re: The View From Somewhere (Jay Rosen & Julian Sanchez)

FWIW, Slate's coverage also mentioned that. That was either in the piece by Fred Kaplan (who I think is a center-right type character whose main interest is the military) or John Dickerson (who's...

Re: Adios McCrystal

I don't think McChrystal will be dumped. He's viewed as too valuable to the war in Afghanistan, and that Rolling Stone article didn't attribute any very bad quotations to him. He's going to be...

Re: Single diavlogger seeks same for stimulating conversation

I was holding out waiting for current events to deliver something good but the news has mostly been about the oil spill and I don't know enough about it to make a diavlogue worthwhile. I'm going to...

Re: The Economist

That article is laughable. If you actually follow the links, when they don't lead to fringe right sites they lead to information directly contradicting their claims.

Of course that might be...

The Economist

Here's (http://www.economist.com/node/16381032?story_id=16381032) another article which is rather more bullish on the BP "shakedown" escrow account

Re: The Week in Blog: Mind-Exploding Edition (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

I feel kind of weird about this but I almost agree with you.. were this any other sector it'd be a travesty. Oil contracts are slippery things though, and there's a reason none of the oil companies...

Re: Hold Your Head High (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

That's like linking to Frum as evidence that people on the right are aware of how insane their party is.

Edit: or to be more explicit about it, that's just Galston riding his normal hobby horse.

Re: In the Interest of Comity (Matthew Yglesias & Eli Lake)

I have a problem similar to AEMJeff's (if I read him right). The label "war criminal" brings to mind the Nuremberg trials for most people, so while it may be technically accurate it's also...

Re: Hold Your Head High (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re: Contemporary Anti-white Policy

It would be nice to get into a time machine and relieve (sic) the 80s so that people can feel superior to Cadillac-driving welfare queens. BUT WE CAN"T (sic) AND IT"S (sic) A NON-ISSUE TODAY.
