Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

On the Texas and sodomy thing, with the Coulter-Savage issue jettisoned, I think continuing on that line will get very peripheral pretty quick. Unless you object, I'm going to set this one down. Now,...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

Congratulations. You met the Savage threshold.

But, then again, I don't think you're giving proper weight to the context of a late night comedy talk show, (not to mention that we started out on...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

First, I only have a minute, but I was trying to argue on the merits. And I don't know if you saw it, but I retracted what I said on whether Savage is equivalent to Coulter when I saw what you said...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

I never said anything was wholly excusable, and I squirm at some of the stuff Savage has done. This all started because of an assertion of an equivalence of Ann Coulter and Savage, so that forms the...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

To clarify, I think this applies when we're talking about rhetorical tactics relevant to the individual's personal cause, which is connected to their nature. It's not a free pass to be a jerk about,...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

Surely your aware of what caused the whole dust-up, yes?

As for agreeing with the panelist on having violent sex...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

Yeah, OK.

It's true. When it comes to judging rhetorical tactics, I find that a person who has to frequently listen to people in power say that the person's sexual nature is sinful and the...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

I will say that the "saddlebacking" thing seems worse than the Santorum thing. Santorum can take care of himself; he's a big boy. But a term coined to denote Christian teens having anal sex? Count me...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

Read the section I'm linking to:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Savage#Opinions_and_points_of_view

Again, I'm not thrilled with these tactics, but the idea that the background of civil rights...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

First, let me say that I don't like the "Santorum" coinage thing. In the long run, I think we should deal directly with one another's political propositions and not engage in personal attacks and...

Re: Values Added: Monogamish Edition (Dan Savage & Ross Douthat)

Not making a substantive point here, but I wonder if I'm the only one that found it funny that Dan Savage spent a lot of time insisting that he wasn't necessarily endorsing some kind of rampant...

Re: Ostracize Dan Savage

Bob's objection to Ann Coulter is located in her rhetorical contribution to our public discourse. You can agree or disagree with whether her contribution is healthy, upstanding, or what have you, but...

Re: This Cutting Edge (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Ok good. Thanks for the reply.

I guess where I tend to disagree, or where I perceive a disagreement, is in whether this problem of demand is an inherent feature of capitalism, or if our problems...

Re: This Cutting Edge (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Hmm, you walk me through the steps and still I don't know. First, may I just ask if you're actually saying the same thing as Florian? You say that any change in the balance between labor and capital...

Re: Utterly Compelling Edition (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

After I posted, I noticed that you didn't actually deny the social cause line, but had instead only criticized Bob's "liberal" (in everyday parlance) line of argument (or at least partial defense...

Re: Utterly Compelling Edition (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

First, I agree that Millman's taxonomy doesn't tell us everything we want to know. This is part feature and part bug. But mostly, I like it a whole lot because it cuts across our tired political...

Re: Utterly Compelling Edition (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on your posts in this flurry, I'm going to assume by "liberal" you mean "leftist." I realize that the terms are interchangeable in everyday talk, but these things...

Re: Science Saturday: Egos on Parade (Robert Wright & John Horgan)

sapeye,

Allow me to piggy-back a bit on what you said in your comment.

John says that the difference between free will and God is that in our everyday lives, we experience free will but not...

Re: Political Philosophy and Wilt Chamberlain (Matthew Yglesias & Julian Sanchez)

JulianSanchez,

I really enjoyed the conversation between you and Matthew.

Re: Victorian Dance Card Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Dan Foster)

If the topic is rape, I'm not sure the Duke stuff is irrelevant.

But for whatever it's worth, when I watched it in real time, I only noticed Amanda laughing when Dan would say "court" or...

Re: Legitimacy Promotion (Hussein Ibish & Eli Lake)

Re: What Is There To Say? (Glenn Loury & Brink Lindsey)

I haven't read the book, so I can't say. But, assuming what you say is true, do you think this rendering had to do with Glenn's... passion?
