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

I get it. Bob Wright is hoping Althouse has another meltdown like she did regarding Jessica Valenti. How cynical!

Re: Protecting the interests of the wealthy!!

I'm confused by that chart. I thought corporations couldn't give directly to candidates. Are those totals just individual contributions summed up by each contributor's employer? (The last time I...

Let's take the counterfactual: Obama does everything Brink says, which is basically nothing (school uniforms? vchip?). No health care, no stimulus, no auto bankruptcy, no finreg. And unemployment is...

I was fine with the 15 minute lovefest at the start, because I really like John and Glenn (separately and together), but holy cow, I was not expected what followed: puerile, Sally-Quinn-grade...

Re: Couldn't be more wrong: Palestinians are already nonviolent

Back when apartheid was in action American conservatives weren't completely against it. At least they have the decency to say it's a bad thing now. This guy...

Re: Diavlog of the Damned (Dave Weigel & Dan Foster)

The committee chairs are based on seniority, but not the leadership positions.

Thanks! This is the diavlog I was asking for. It's really important to have a left national security policy. As long as Democrats keep running from these issues Republicans will always get their way....

Re: from Loury & Wax

DZ, you have very good taste. Afternoon Delight is one of the best. I'd still recommend starting from the beginning though. I think a hundred years from now AD will represent the Bush years better...

Re: Science Saturday: Mystery Science Theater 2010

Mick's great, as is Keith, and I'd rather listen to them instead of Hendrix most days, but Hendrix is still the better player. The most overrated has to be Clapton. He's a pretty conventional blues...

Re: Oops. My bad.

Wonderment, what happened between the summer of 2009 and February 2010? Do you remember? I'll remind you. No Republican Senators came forward to support HCR at all, let alone the public option, and...

Re: The Week in Blog: The Bills Are Back in Town (Bill Scher & William Beutler)

Wilkinson's not really a libertarian -- he admires Rawls, endorses the Nordic model (protection for people but not for corporations), and is off the Koch payroll (canned). He's just another social...

Re: The hits keep on comin'

If those supposed 5-10 Republicans who support DADT's repeal put forward their own bill it would pass easily. No such bill exists. What can we conclude from that?

Re: Wonderment

Well put.

There's an old quote from JFK that I'm fond of:
