Re: The Week in Blog: Politics of Cool (Bill Scher & Matt K. Lewis)

Newt is a favorite for a core GOP constituency: angry white men. There are lots of older angry white men that have been through divorces, maybe multiple divorces, and these people are likely to be...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

Um, your premise that Obama is the standard bearer of OWS is just false. The Occupy DC protest was on Pennsylvania Avenue, a few blocks from the White House. These people are there precisely...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

I've been to the protests, in DC. I didn't see anyone calling for violence against millionaires or anyone else. I didn't see anyone defecating on police cars, when I was there. In fact, I didn't...

Re: The Week in Blog: Negative Feedback Edition (Chris Moody & Matt Lewis)

1) As far as the President's ability to change the income distribution, I agree. This is a trend that has been in place for 30 years. It doesn't have anything to do with this administration's...

Re: The Week in Blog: Negative Feedback Edition (Chris Moody & Matt Lewis)

Maybe I'm missing something, but:
1) Healthcare reform hasn't exactly happened yet

Re: The Week in Blog: Negative Feedback Edition (Chris Moody & Matt Lewis)

I attended the OccupyDC rally in Freedom Plaza on Thursday evening. There were about 500 people there. No visible police, at all. Most of the content that evening was anti-war. This probably, of...

Re: Riding the Metaphor Train (Katherine Mangu-Ward & Erica Grieder)

Re: Friendless Losers of the Political Class (Evan Smith & Joshua Trevino)

Re: Values Added: Southern Baptist Edition (Amy Sullivan & Richard Land)

Re: Texas Forever (Amanda Marcotte & Joshua Trevino)

The data about job creation in Texas is for real, and this includes jobs in the science/engineering sectors.

The anomaly, and where the political discussion should move, is the discrepancy...

Jobs are good--but what are they good for?

Re: Bachmann, Submission and Political Ambition

I haven't heard any commentary on the Michele Bachmann "I submitted to Marcus and became a tax attorney" story that demonstrates any insight into what Bachmann was saying.

Re: Boehner's next crap sandwich

At this point Boehner has lost control of the process. Obama will sign any bill that comes out of the Senate. Reid and McConnell are going to have to make a deal that can pass the Senate. If they...

Re: Science Saturday: Sexist Skeptics (Ann Althouse & Rebecca Watson)

outside the elevator, it's poor social skills. Inside the elevator, at 4 AM with no one else there, it's poor social skills, and it's kind of creepy. It's not gouging a woman's eyes out, and I...

Re: Values Added: A Moral Budget (Jim Wallis & Richard Land)

Re: Values Added: A Moral Budget (Jim Wallis & Richard Land)

Reihan on Texas and the Perry Record (Conor Friedersdorf & Reihan Salam)

Reihan seems to have done some research on Perry record in Texas, a helpful preview, perhaps, as Perry prepares to enter the race.
