Michael Goldfarb

Michael Goldfarb may be the dumbest guy ever to appear on BHTV. And I am including the short-lived appearance by creationist Michael Behe.

Re: Angry Crazy People (Mark Kleiman & Brink Lindsey)

Re: Oral Twittering (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Mickey Kaus can't be this stupid. He's got to be upset that he wasn't invited by Ezra to join this list. Some people want to get together and have a list where they discuss shit. They're liberals....

Yeah, that would be pretty awful. I don't read the NY Times op-ed page anymore - Kristol, Brooks, Friedman. I can't stand it. You know, there's no accounting for quality. The pundit class...

Re: A Humbler Stimulus?

No. She's not "pragmatic", she's ignorant. McArdle is someone who doesn't know very much about the things she on which she proclaims herself an expert: finance, economics, politics, the war. That's...

Know Nothingness II

Ok, one more post just to drive home my point:

Know-Nothing McArdle

I don't know where to begin. Megan McArdle does not know what she's talking about. She doesn't know, definitionally, what it means to be a libertarian. I think she's read Capitalism and Freedom, and...

Re: Let Slip The Dogs Of War

Kirchick keeps asking questions like: "is American great? Isn't America exceptional" as if disagreement with those questions marks one as somehow bad.

Re: Let Slip The Dogs Of War

Kirchick: "Is America wonderful"?

Come on pal. That's your response to a kind of thought experiment about whether war was really the best or only way to respond to the grievances Americans had?

Re: I would much rather have Bill Ayers for a friend...

When he was at Politico, I sort of like Conn Carroll. But since he's moved to Heritage, he's sort of been an upgraded version of knuckledragging right-wing bloggers.
