Re: Speaking of Less Happy Topics

Megan, vis-a-vis Israel/Gaza. I don't think being a concern troll about Israel's public relations profile gets to the nub of the situation. There's a power vacuum that's going to be filled by a...

Re: Qualifications and Disqualifications

I enjoyed how Jack and Ann got bogged down in the intricacies of Illinois constitutional law vis-a-vis Blago when the obvious screamed out for clarification. We've got a President from that, let us...

Re: Breaking the Narrative

If Byron or Mark want to play in the political economist big leagues, I suggest they adopt usage of the term "tranche". I sensed Byron was getting to it at one point. I knew the jig was already up...

Re: Obama: "Lipstick"... "Pig"... "Stinks like an old fish"

[QUOTE=mvantony I was surprised to see Obama go that far. He seems to be cracking a bit.
I didn't construe his remarks as a personal attack, but a rather clever use of the lipstick...

Re: The Chess Game

Here's a paradoxical thought for you all. If McCain/Palin should win, heaven forfend, maybe his demise would be opportune because I think his choice of Palin makes him seem the most dangerous,...

Re: McCain on the March

If the Dems want to really get down and dirty and make Tony Rezko look like a relatively small fry operator they should send some opposition research into Arizona and dig up stuff on Cindy's daddy. ...

Re: Like a Prayer

I enjoyed Bob and Ann's competing brushes with greatness. I think the gold standard (or pewter if you like) was set in the fake letters column of the old National Lampoon. A Rolling Stone wrote in...

Re: Job offer

Hey John, just a bit of a non sequiter attack here. Sort of coming out of left field so to speak. Let me amend that. Right field is where I'm coming from. I posted earlier about my paradigm, my...

Re: Political Superheroes

With Matt talking about McCain "enthusiasts" and Ross talking about "building him up" I've started to think that Bob's instituted some sort of fairness doctrine vis-a-vis McNasty. Even the MSM...

Re: The Rise of the Autocracies

Bob said something about owing an historical debt to the Kosovars. That's a pretty recent vintage compared to recognition,if not a debt, we owe to the Russians and Serbs for being on the right side...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

Something that's come up, something that I dare to mention, is the subject of product placement. Some newscast in Vegas is taking payola so to speak and next thing you know I'm suspecting Bob's made...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

I've got to hand it to Bob. He's a blithe spirit of the multi-cult universe. He's a veritable Will Rogers when it comes to giving the benefit of the doubt to any culture that comes down the pike. ...

Re: Free Will: Hiya, Hayek!

I know that Hayek is a very enticing, seductive thinker. You get to the point however where his adherence to the free market becomes utopian. In his world displaced CEO's become clerks at the 7-11...
