Re: Be Seeing You (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

I'm afraid Bob & Mickey are probably wrong about whom the Tea Party is comprised of. I think it's mostly THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT!
Yes, there was famously that Tea Partier with the sign that said:...

Re: Penny For Your Thoughts (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Regarding Sandusky, etc. - One thing I always think about when these horrible child abuse cases happen is: Who would ever ask to be sexually attracted to children? And, in the case of at least...

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

BOB! - Sunflower seeds are NOT inseparable from salt intake! I eat raw, unsalted sunflower seeds. And you can too.

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

I would suppose that moderate drinking of, say, red wine might reduce stress, which might be beneficial to the heart.

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

I'm puzzled by Bob's reference to dark chocolate as being a negative in terms of good health. Dr. (I-forget-his-first-name) Weill, the preventive health advocate, always says that eating dark...

Re: Live From the West Bank (Robert Wright & Younes Arar)

As a half-Jew (and a person), the behavior of the Israeli settlers horrifies me.
I think the Israeli right-wingers and the Palestinian right-wingers deserve each other. I wish there were a way to...

Re: Values Added: Southern Baptist Edition (Amy Sullivan & Richard Land)

The Religious Right is alive and active today via the Tea Party. The two overlap. They are both dogmatic and driven by ideology rather than empiricism or pragmatism. Just listen to the religious...

Re: The Week in Blog: Shiny Edition (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

Sorry to simply echo, but: Yes, yes, Obama has had positive net jobs growth too.

Re: Slavering Sanctimonious Panopticon Edition (Michelle Goldberg & Rebecca Traister)

In response to Michelle, I would say YES, it is possible for a man to be involved in a very loving, very committed sexual relationship with a woman he deeply loves and to get on the subway after a...

Re: Slavering Sanctimonious Panopticon Edition (Michelle Goldberg & Rebecca Traister)

As a man, I have long believed that there are differences between the male and female sex drives and I have come to conclude that the male sex drive is, to some degree, a form of insanity that most...

Re: Getting into a Good Mood (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re: Two Faces in the Crowd (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

BOB!!! I think you're wrong. My recollection is that Tucker Carlson very clearly OPPOSED the Iraq war. You should look this up. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't think so.

Re: Two Faces in the Crowd (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Dusty Rhodes was, I believe, a pinch-hitter for the New York Giants in the 1950s.

Re: Underhanded Humiliation Edition (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

Re: Values Added: Light Bulb Revolution (Amanda Marcotte & Mollie Ziegler-Hemingway)

I'm impressed that a pro-choice and pro-life woman could carry on a civil discussion about abortion. Their underlying anger at each other's positions did sometimes show, which was to be expected, but...

Re: Special Composite Edition (Alex Pareene & Tom Scocca)

Whichever of these diavloggers kept clinking a teaspoon on a coffee cup or whatever he was doing - I think it was Tom - was creating a very annoying distraction for me. Maybe it's just my problem but...

Re: Holy Obamacare Repeal, Batman! (Jamelle Bouie & Peter Suderman)

Re: Holy Obamacare Repeal, Batman! (Jamelle Bouie & Peter Suderman)

I am very curious: What was it about Libertarianism that made that Libertarian cited by Peter more interested in healthcare policy than Republicans? I can't imagine that Libertarianism caused him to...

Re: Tease Away (Glenn Loury & Ann Althouse)

I think President Obama was right to refrain from telling the audience in Arizona to stop cheering. It was a local audience. It would have been tacky for Obama tell them how to behave at their...

Re: Live From Islamabad (Mosharraf Zaidi & Brian Katulis)

Re: The Week in Blog: Take a Breath (Bill Scher & Conn Carroll)

I do agree with Conn that that sheriff's remarks were too partisan for a law enforcement official - even though I sympathize with the sheriff's opinion about right-wing rhetoric. As sheriff, I think...

Re: The Week in Blog: Take a Breath (Bill Scher & Conn Carroll)

I'm surprised that every sane Conservative has not been completely outraged by that "second-amendment remedies" statement.

Re: Anti-Eliminationist Edition (Adam Serwer & Michael C. Moynihan)

My Jewish mother was accused of killing Jesus by Catholic children in Ohio when she was a little girl in the 1920s. The Catholic kids threw stones at her as the shouted the accusations.
