Re: McCain Post Mortem

Good post. Maybe you or someone can tell me why Mickey, who I admire, professes bemusement at John McCain for not using Rev. Wright material until now. Is Mickey's bemusement real? Surely McCain...

Re: The Conservative Civil War

This was fun. Like watching two dinosaurs argue over the typology of rogue celestial objects.

Re: Playing With Fire

Foobs, I too don't get the 'smart' appellation that Wonderment and others have applied to Palin. It's entirely possible that underneath all her apparent defects -- incuriosity, indifference to...

Re: Jane Hamsher for President!

I'm glad someone liked Jane's performance, but I found Hamsher far more effective in her recent diavlog with Althouse than I found her here. Just as Jim wouldn't answer her objection that the...

Re: Palin Fire

Do I have to say it again? She's a weak target and the fact that the she attracts so much attention says more about the detractors than it does about her. Let the other side nurture and keep its...

Re: Palin Fire

But as has been noted before in this thread, she voted for Gore. Take issue with actual arguments she makes, or don't. But making her a special object of mockery and scorn, when we've got Malkins...

Re: Palin Fire

And her vote for Al Gore would mean . . . ?

A lot of feminists soured on the Clintons when they became convinced that Bill was a serial sexual harasser. It's a valid opinion, if not one I share.

Re: Palin Fire

I fully endorse drinking beer on the porch. I don't endorse the evangelical view (in my experience the specifically Southern Baptist view) that unwed pregnancy suggests a trashy family background....

Re: Palin Fire

The Christian ethos I grew up with says that decent people aren't losers. Losers do things like drink beer on the porch, let their dogs run free, work intermittently and have children out of...

Re: Palin Fire

Oh, I don't blame Obama for Obama-girl so I'm hardly going to blame Althouse for her more rabid followers. I can see why a Michele Malkin would become the ante-muse of liberal males (to borrow from...

Re: Palin Fire

Palin is perhaps pulling in those 'leaners' who were never seriously going to give Obama a look. To win the true leaners, we'll have to somehow demonstrate that the last eight years is what you get...

Re: Palin Fire

While we're asking questions about Althouse's defenders, what does it say about her detractors that she voted for their favored candidate in the Democratic primary? That's not a flippant question. ...

Re: Palin Fire

Not caring how others -- at least some others -- perceive you is a sign of mental illness, not feminism. Althouse provokes reactions far disproportionate to anything she actually says. If the...

Re: Palin Fire

Believe me, I'd love a joke about her inconsistent standards. Or the fact she stayed up all night to dissect Reverend Wright's every utterance and inhalation when he talked to Bill Moyers (that was...

Re: Palin Fire

While I worship Jane Hamsher for demonstrating that Althouse seems to sometimes think that "liberal" is just another word for "vindictive nutjob with laptop", it's patently wrong to say that...

Re: Palin is dangerous: ignore her

Absolutely. I'm heartened that Team Obama has taken a hands-off attitude to Palin's personal life. The Culture War card is the only one that the GOP has left so let's keep the focus on the old...

Re: The Chess Game

Yep, in nominating Palin, McCain takes his best argument against Obama off the table. McCain's not stupid, so I assume that he thinks his pick will help keep the election on the terrain of clashing...

Re: Taking the Veil

I think there's a difference between being confrontational and being probing. I'm not being coy when I defended Jackie as giving a smart interview, but there are non-confrontational ways to ask if...

Re: Taking the Veil

It wasn't dumb at all, just incomplete. In fact, given how carefully Jackie in particular stepped around the various minefields, I'd say it was pretty smart.

Re: Taking the Veil

It took a certain amount of courage on Jackie's part to talk about these matters at all, and a certain amount of courage on Sarah's to have personal preferences paraded like this. But, I take your...

Re: Immigration Nation

I agree with Drew: provide Dingalinks for your assertions. Though I'm more in favor of immigration than Krikorian is, I applaud his courteousness and deplore Dalmia's lack of same. If Dalmia...

Re: The Rise of the Autocracies

Re: The Skinny on Obesity
