Re: Avant-Garde Edition (David Weigel & James Pinkerton)

Come on, Jim, tell us what you really think!

Even though Pinkerton's views are not always my cup of tea, I think he's a great contributor to BHtv.

But he goes well north of paranoid-town in...

Re: Degrees of Essential (Mark Schmitt & Megan McArdle)

Did anyone know that Megan is smart and went to business school?

Re: What Do Women Diavloggers Want?

I think it's perfectly reasonable for Obama to not announce a specific plan for closing Gitmo on day-one for a few very obvious reasons (so obvious that I think Althouse may be overdoing it in her...

Re: Speechwriters on Obama's Speeches

It's truly fascinating to watch David Frum squirm about the many possible "pitfalls" in a venture as banal and obvious as a speech from the American President to the Muslim world when he vigorously...

HOWEVER, I found her treacly defense of McCain kind of pathetic and weird. She says that...

The Libertarian Look

Is it just me, or do a lot of libertarians have a kind of similar affect and look? I get an ironic, hipster-ish feel for BHtv libertarians Wilkinson, McArdle, and Welch. Sanchez, too, but probably...

Re: 80 degrees, Blue Skies and a Concert

Fishy, I think you should probably stay away from any Indie Rock-related analysis in the future... For anyone who knows who the Decemberists are (I do), it's a bit silly to suggest that they brought...

Pathological nonsense

Jeralynn really ought to step back for a second and listen to herself... What planet is she living on? The big story out of last night was some worthless mayor who is now Hill-dog Enemy Number One?

Re: Is Hillary Crazy?

Rob, let her talk! I think you're funny and interesting, but the relentless interrupting is driving me crazy. It reminds me of the "Interruptor" on Conan O'Brien.

Head nearly exploding.

As someone who joined the Democratic Party for one reason--to vote for Obama in my primary--it's things like this diavlog that make me wonder if I've made a huge mistake.

It's not that I don't...

Re: The Week in Blog: Biotourism

Man, this is exhausting.

First of all, I just read this CSM piece this morning and thought it would be relevant. I read the article, remembered our discussion, and posted it. Period. Never said...

Re: The Week in Blog: Biotourism

Just came across this piece (http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0410/p01s05-wome.html) from Sam Dagher in the CS Monitor today. Title is "In Iraq, Sunni Insurgents Still Aim To Oust U.S., Shiites".

Re: When Well the Troops Leave

I'm sure that any process of absorbing tens or hundreds of thousands of Iraqis would be a total nightmare. Lifting all of them from a warzone would be very messy and costly. However, I think a lot of...

Re: The Week in Blog: Biotourism

In response to your questions about where I get my crazy ideas, I recommend this piece (http://www.prospect.org/cs/articles?article=sunni_world) from Professor Marc Lynch.

Re: Sadr as Iran proxy

I don't doubt that Sadr has Iranian ties. However, I think it's just wrong to singularly implicate him as an Iranian puppet in diametric opposition to Dawa, ISCI, etc. And of course, there's a reason...

Re: The Week in Blog: Biotourism

I believe this line of thinking, in the context of the current struggle against Islamic extremism, is deeply flawed.

In a conflict such as World War II, of course it would have been a disaster if...

Sadr as Iran proxy

Conn only briefly referred to this, but I think it's something that needs a real probing. In an offhand remark, he said that he saw Sadr as an "Iranian puppet". Later, he seemed to elaborate on this...

nerd rush

Hearing Bob say my username was a real highlight of my BHtv listening career. "Moose" is actually my nickname from college, and I'm from Louisiana, thus "LA Moose". Also, it sounds French.

Re: Bombs Over Basra

Can Goldfarb's optimism about the recent events in Basra be described as anything but the most wishful of thinking? Every time he was challenged--about Iran backing Sadr, about Iraq-Al Qaeda ties,...
