Re: Standard Deviations (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

It's about time people did away with the idea that Jonah Goldberg is any kind of intellectual. Bob Wright, if you have Jonah Goldberg on you're not going to have any conversation worth having.

Re: Values Added: A Little Learning (Sarah Posner & Michael Brendan Dougherty)

Gingrich's and D'Souza's 'Kenyan Anti-colonial' line eventually fails because most people seem to have failed to understand the pure racism of their words.

When the African nationalists brought...

Re: The Candidate (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Mickey the candidate is infinitely more compelling than Mickey the blogger.

It's my first exposure to Mickey Kaus that doesn't leave me thinking his contrarian core has reduced his intelligence to...

Re: What is Past, or Passing, or to Come

Stop with Ayers already. Not unless you're simultaneously foaming at the mouth about G. Gordon Liddy, Ollie North and the rest of McCain's wacko friends.

But to specifically respond to Eli Lake, I...

Re: Cheap Shots

Everyone cares about Corsi consorting with racists given some of the comments he himself has made.

In the end, associations matter or they don't.

If you're not running for President you're not subject to guilt-by-association?

Re: Cheap Shots

Oh, let's get this straight. Corsi can play guilt-by-association with Obama but he' immune from guilt for consorting with outright racist hate characters?

How did Jane Hamsher miss this?

Re: In Defense of Dumb Presidents

Obama objectively has more qualification to be President than Palin. He is a US Senator with four years standing in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He actually did study international...

Re: The Week in Blog: Palin-mania!

The reason Palin is deemed to be lying about the bridge to nowhere is that it's the earmark that was deemed a waste of tax-payer money. She took the money. That she didn't use it for the bridge is...

Re: Can You Spare Some Change?

Conservatives can sometimes be silly. Obama is not campaigning on experience and doesn't need to knock off Palin's experience. He only needs to knock off McCain's judgement on Palin.

Also McCain...

Re: The State of the Race

The Republicans seem not to realise that the 97% voting of Obama with his party can be described as votes in opposition to the Bush/DeLay/K-Street agenda.

Re: The State of the Race

Obama's not claimed to be so much bi-partisan as post-partisan. He doesn't say he'll work with Republicans to split the difference but to push issues on which large coalitions can be built.

He is...

Re: Affirmative Action and Legitimized racism

Affirmative Action and Legitimized racism

Let's call a spade a spade. Calling Obama an affirmative action candidate is racist. It is.

It denigrates him for nothing other than the color of his skin.

If "surge" doesn't mean "troop increase" then McCain can't take credit for the surge.

If McCain meant "counterinsurgecy strategy" when he talked about the surge, how then can he claim credit for the surge as he has been doing and been receiving credit from the press for.

If the...

Re: don't agree with Kirchik but Matt seemed naive about Iran

Well, Iran certainly had reason to take Bush's rhetoric seriously.

They are all also deeply unhappy about their pariah status. The last Iranian I talked to, a young grad student, is planning to...

Re: don't agree with Kirchik but Matt seemed naive about Iran

abemahler,

If you did not make any real effort to negotiate, you really can't claim that your overture wasn't responded to.

But you think that Bush and the Europeans made a real effort....

Re: don't agree with Kirchik but Matt seemed naive about Iran

You're not debating with Matt. But I'll even take your point nevertheless. When you possess the sheer destructive force of the United States, and are invading two of Iran's neighbours, no way can it...

Re: don't agree with Kirchik but Matt seemed naive about Iran

abemahler,

I think that's an artificial and not particularly useful way to frame the issue. (Good faith or not good faith).

To keep it simple: The Bush admin made it clear to Iran that they...
