Re: The Filibuster (Zeke Webster & Conn Carroll)

After Zeke warmed up he was great. Better than some of the first liners. I'd listen to Zeke again, and I'm not a bloggingheads devotee; I watch perhaps 1/3 of the diavlogs (always Bob & Mickey, and...

Do Liberals Listen To Limbaugh?

Reminds me of the story of Voltaire and the whorehouse.

One night Voltaire suggested that as philosophers they needed to understand life, and so they should visit a whorehouse to deepen their...

Re: Ann Plays the Race Card

Was Ann big on asking people who criticized Obama how they were so sure they aren't being racist? I didn't think so.

Becoming a political star is hard. One third of the country wants to kill you...

Re: Economic Throwdown Edition

Wow. Dean Baker really mopped the floor!

Megan McArdle is a libertarian, so she is duty bound to defend Alan Greenspan and to minimize the potential effectivenes of government. Those duties twist...

Re: The Future of Labor

Boy, that was quite a mutual backrub!

Andy Stern argues that health care employment will go up after reform. I don't think so. The US health care system devours 14% of GDP and by most measures...

Re: In Defense of Dumb Presidents

Glenn aggressively argues that Obama had to pick Hillary Clinton to live up to his claims that he is a uniter. The problem is that we don't know why Obama didn't pick Hillary. Perhaps there is (not...

Re: The Chess Game

Thank God these guys aren't Obama aides. They would lose this election soooo fast.

Not that they are wrong. Creationists and Rev. Wright have more in common than most see, but that is the point;...

Re: What Would Nixon Do?

Those who want to know why Republicans keep winning will do well to listen carefully to Pinkerton. Take the Sturgis bikers. Jane goes on about how Obama is the up from the bootstraps candidate while...

Re: Free Will: The Grow-the-Economy Fan Club

Complaining and complaining that there are no prices in health care, Will fails to note the obvious. In a single payer system there are prices! The single payer knows the prices quite well, and in...

Re: The Week in Blog: Energy Madness

Wow. Matt Stoller was bad. Pompous, dismissive, & snotty. Unfortunately for him his arrogance is undeserved. Conn Carroll got the best of him.

On substance:

Liberals are right that US ANWR and...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

To those who note Jim Pinkerton's evident visceral dislike of muslims:

1. Yes, it is easy to see, and real.

2. It supports his point, that if you scratch the surface christians and muslims...

Re: Strategies of Orcish Containment

This was a GREAT diavlog!!

Sorry Mickey, but JP is more supple, equally smart, and therefore more interesting.

Re: Camus, Bob Dylan, and Naked Women Painted Like Cows

Re: Gratuitous Disrespect Edition

Mickey's Fatal Attraction insult was dumb. So was the taser talk. Women have been called irrational and hysterical for ages (etymology of hysteria is to hyster, the womb, see hysterectomy)....

But still, he has the better end of the argument, although he fails to press the right points.

Re: MSM = Media Supporting McCain?

Cox is more likable, but Greenwald's points stick, although he tends to overstate.

Why did Hillary & Tuzla get so much more coverage than McCain & Iran/al qaeda? Both were important mistakes that...

Re: Grown-Ups Only Edition

Basman,
Exactly. Rosa Brooks needs a heavyweight. Posner is a great choice. Personally, I think she would do OK.

Re: The Bloggingheads Redesign - now literally unusable on a slow connection

Thanks, Brendan.
I can try Firefox if needed, but I hope Bloggingheads steps up on this. They were doing it right, and now they are doing something wrong. I hope their tech guy is good.
