Re: After Massachusetts (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

This could be explained by the Times, etc. getting more liberal, but it could equally well be explained by you becoming more conservative. I'd bet that your own views shifting contributed to at least...

Re: Flying Cars Edition (David Corn & Jim Pinkerton)

No need. Prof. Latif complained (http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jan/11/climate-change-global-warming-mojib-latif)about the Mail mischaracterizing his work the very next day.

BTW, I...

Re: Science Saturday: The Matinee Edition (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I think this (http://www.slate.com/id/2218834/) is the Slate piece on Terminator that is mentioned in the diavlog.

Re: Utopia and Its Discontents

I'd just like to say that I enjoy Reihan's diavlogs, and I appreciate his lighthearted attitude. So keep doing your thing, Reihan.

It looks like the pro and anti folks both want more...

Re: Yuletide Cheer Edition

Re: Free Will: Who's being protected?

Well, one could make the argument that the inheritors of an artist's estate should benefit from the continuing popularity of that artist's work. And we do have laws about the length of time after...

Re: The Subprime Solution

Other than the fact that the example Prof. Shiller gives and the Obama tax plan both deal with low income people, exactly what is the connection? Are you saying that the Obama advisors are still...

Re: The Week in Blog: Always On Message

I'll admit that I don't fully understand all the proposals, but I did read that NYT piece. What is the difference between Conn's proposal and the new Treasury plan being discussed? Is it just that...

Re: Performed Intelligence

"Ad hominem" is tricky in politics because there is a way to go too far in attacking the person. Certain attacks on character or on family cross the line. However, you can't separate the person from...

Re: Songs of the Bushmen

Can you say straw-man?

How 'bout we change this up to say that it happened in the late 1940's (when McCain was a child) and that by the time, oh say in the late 70's, McCain met him when they...

Re: Breaking the Narrative

I didn't find Byron all that bad. There was this (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/14613?in=17:37&out=18:14) where he does criticize McCain a little. Which is more than, let's say, Matt Lewis would...

Re: WSJ: Obama's Executive Experience

Seriously though, the WSJ opinion piece told me they were "radical" several times and...

Re: Can You Spare Some Change?

Maybe he's just an optimist, but Matt's MO seems to be "admit no weakness." Even when he's saying that he expects to be upset by some things that a McCain administration would do, he makes it sound...

Re: You Can't Prove Gut

U.S. Census to the rescue! Apparently ~74% of Americans are white, ~16% of whites over the age of 25 do not have a high school degree, so ~11% would be "uneducated white people" if I'm doing my math...

I think you and I interpret words differently. I'll admit that I might be interpreting things wrongly, but I don't see in the same thing is Martin's words that you do.

Re: The Only Reason Palin's On the Ticket

I have to assume that you are talking about this exchange (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/14246?in=09:37&out=09:51). Dan actually does the opposite of what you claim. He specifically says he...

Re: Science Saturday: The Anthropology of War

Re: What Makes America Great

I'm 20 minutes in. Megan thinks ordinary people will not like attacks on Palin's lack of experience because they think they could run Washington. But attacks on Palin's unsavory parts of Palin's...
