Bloggingheads ripoff on "The Good Wife"

Anyone else catch the Bloggingheads imitation on "The Good Wife"? There was a scene in which Chris Noth's character is being interviewed on a video web interview site called "Vloggingbrains" or some...

Re: The pros and cons of being gal writers

I'd have to re-listen to that part of the conversation to be sure, and I don't care enough to spend the time, but I thought they were expressing genuine admiration for male non-fiction writers'...

Re: The pros and cons of being gal writers

Do you recognize any tension between (a) your criticism of Gilbert and Orlean for their admiration of male reporters' ability to overcome what Gilbert and Orlean see as a handicap when it comes to...

Re: The pros and cons of being gal writers

I assumed Plinthy was making fun of Bokonon's complaint.

Re: A Julia Roberts-Meryl Streep Smackdown (Elizabeth Gilbert & Susan Orlean)

Re: Obama's Priorities

Yes, I know that you repeatedly said it was so named and organized in 2007. However, the evidence appears to show that it was so named and organized in 2006. This is not a particularly important...

Re: Obama's Priorities

Wow, are you really digging yourself deeper into this hole? No one disputes that the Anbar Awakening began in 2006, except for you. And you say that I am living in a fantasy world? Since you don't...

Re: Obama's Priorities

No offense, but you're completely full of it, and your dates are simply wrong. Sheik Abdul Sattar formed his group in 2006. If you don't believe me, read this Time Magazine article...

Re: Obama's Priorities

Again, this is irrelevant to the question of whether the surge "began the Anbar Awakening." It simply didn't. No rhetoric about how "the surge and the change in strategy are intrinsically linked and...

Re: Obama's Priorities

Huh? What exactly does this have to do with the cancelation of the visit to the mil hospital?

Oh, I get it. Here's the logic:

1. Obama said he couldn't disown Wright.
2. After Wright became an...

Re: Obama's Priorities

And how does all this bear on the simply question of whether the surge "began the Anbar Awakening," which is what McCain said to Katie Couric? You seem to admit that using a "strict time analysis,"...

Re: Obama's Priorities

That's all you can infer? Then you lack imagination. Here's another hypothesis: Obama probably wanted to visit troops for the same half-noble/half-cynical reasons that all these politicians pay...

Re: Obamamania: The World Tour

Gotta love this from Ana Marie Cox at Time today (http://www.time-blog.com/swampland/2008/07/obama_explains_it_all.html):

"McCain has often said he'd rather "lose an election than lose a war," but...

Re: About Jim Murphy

I thought the key phrase in there was, "I have captained the Parliamentary Football Team."

Re: I Heart UN Plaza (and want more)!

Obama policy on targeting bin Laden "insane"?

Re: So Much for Separation of Church and State

Pretty sure Will said that the Koch family founded the Cato Institute and David Koch is on Cato's board of directors. I don't think he said anything about "Family" members being behind BHtv.

Re: Obama isn't black because Obama isn't black

Re: Obama isn't black because Obama isn't black

Good idea! Let's start by dispensing with the stupid rhetorical questions that distort and caricature arguments you disagree with, such "Is Dickerson even aware that Obama was born in the U.S.?" or...

Re: Another link

Maybe she did, but certainly not "constantly", and my point was that she obviously knows Obama's background perfectly well. And it's hardly unusual to refer to people as "Irish" or "Chinese" or...
