Re: A Conscience for the State

Hey, I know this is WAY off topic, but I've been looking for a good book or two on the War of the Triple Alliance (in the 1860s).

Any recommendations? Preferably in English, since I'm, like,...

Re: We Should Fear Ourselves, Not China

Thanks, by the by, for answering in such length. I do see your point, and the case for your revulsion is well made. However, I do think there needs to be an appreciation that, politics aside, this...

Why again does Mickey hate Ezra?

I keep hearing Ezra bad-mouthed by Mickey. Why again is there such bad blood between the two?

In this diavlog, Ezra seemed like a nice fellow. Not that I agree with him, but his points were...

Re: We Should Fear Ourselves, Not China

Thanks for the extended and interesting post, B

2 quick things:

1) Loved the opening ceremonies. But that's probably some deep evolutionary fascination with shiny, flashy things. I guess I...

Re: A Conscience for the State

Perhaps I'm wrong on this, but I don't think I am.... In a number of countries where abortion is a less "anything goes" sort of thing, I think you often find a lot of Christian pro-lifers on the far...

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

Just finished Anne Applebaum's book "Gulag". Quite moving, especially in her coverage of children born and raised in the Gulag. I know she writes for the Washington Post and is married to a...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

True that. Sting would also deploy the moose. He'd just do it real slow.

Glad to see you're on board with my plan to ensure that Mickey is non work-safe.

He's just Beast for the day. Kind of like Rabban Lite.


But the point is (and pay attention to this)... No matter who Bob picks to be Rabban, the part of Mickey Kaus in the BHtv movie will be...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

What about someone who takes PR lessons from the Baron Harkonnen (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/13030?in=00:02:43&out=00:03:16)?



How's that for an obscure, pop culture reference that Bob's...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

Quite the contrary, there's arguably some grudging respect here for Michelle (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/117?in=00:43:41&out=00:45:00).

The video begins around the same the time that Bob is...

Re: Why Obama should speak at the Brandenburg Gate

At the risk of sounding like a prat, I'll mention that Youtube has a lot of Mitchell and Webb videos. It might not be your kettle of tea, but I'm a huge fan.

The Humor is very British, of course,...

Re: Why Obama should speak at the Brandenburg Gate

Hmmm. Nope. I'm just a white guy. But I would so dig it if people would read my posts as if it were Isaac Hayes's voice.

Except then they might associate me with Scientology.

I kind of agree...

Re: Why Obama should speak at the Brandenburg Gate

For what it's worth, my best pal is with the US State Department. He keeps telling me how it's impossible to overstate how big a deal the Obama thing is overseas.

Then again, with Hillary we might...

Re: ICC stuff

Hmmm. I guess at some point, we just get to the point that we're talking past one another. However, do you see here how your hunger for justice (in this case, for the Shah) is in direct conflict with...

Re: Obamamania: The World Tour

Interesting.

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. By which I assume you mean more than 200,000 violent deaths of Iraqi citizens. That's over twice the number quoted by iraqbodycount.

Is that a...

Re: How Megan became a Libertarian

Hmmm. How stunningly tone-deaf!
I'll admit, I read Reason magazine on occasion, and I listen to Cato events every now and then. But this has always been the thing that bugs me most about the...

Re: Wright & the Quintessence of Hackery (cont)

Well, this thread sort of turned into "the world vs Exeus", so I'd like to reiterate that you may have something here.
Given the many cases of Bob's passion on this subject, I think it's a pretty...

Re: Wright & the Quintessence of Hackery (cont)

Hi, Exeus... You might be onto something, but can I offer a minor defense of Bob here?

In a sense, the difference between Mickey and Heather is that the former admits that he's not a big foreign...

Liberaltarians anyone?

Wow, is it just me, or does Megan excite unusually high negatives among the BHTV commentariat?

Not that this level of invective is misplaced, but it sure makes this whole "liberaltarian" project...

Re: ICC stuff

I think I will play the pedantic card, and note that your examples are all outside of Africa, where there is often not the same excruciating tension between peacekeeping and prosecution.

Re: ICC stuff

Thanks for that article, Wonderment! Great summation of my worry about the ICC.

Again, I worry that the ICC will start dispensing a lot of "impartial" justice, and end up being a permanent enemy...

Re: Jewish humor

Heh. I heard Michael interviewed on NPR (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6467645)... sounded like a great book.

I wish I could add more of substance, but I'm really enjoying the comments. Thanks!

Re: The Afghanistan Surge, Part 2

Here's a hint. When you review NRO and Weekly Standard, you might want to check that their comments aren't enclosed in <irony> tags either.


But now that I think about it, some NRO guys do have a...
