Re: A very silly "presidential matchmaking quiz"..

Oh, apparently I picked the Bachmann/Romney answer for the Pakistan question. Too bad there was no option for "I have no idea what to do with Pakistan, we're probably screwed whatever we do". I would...

Who is this guy? Can you trust him?

Matt Lewis is one of the many TV pundits commenting on Romney's dubious record in the DNC's video Mitt vs. Mitt (http://www.mittvmitt.com/). He's at 0:40.

Re: Lessons Learned: Iraq War Redux? (Robert Wright & Heather Hurlburt)

Yeah, you know what, I don't care. I don't go in for a lot of philosophizing about who's the aggressor and who's more honorable and so forth. The only thing I'm interested in is seeing the...

Re: Why is Cain not viewed as historic as Obama?

Alan Keyes was actually the first presidential candidate I ever saw, because he was the only presidential candidate who came to Salem, Oregon, in 1996. Pretty much all I remember is that he spent the...

Re: Lessons Learned: Iraq War Redux? (Robert Wright & Heather Hurlburt)

Re: The Week in Blog: Shockingly Fundamental Edition (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)
