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

As always, the links are wanting. Here's a nice breakdown (http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/285409/statist-delusions-mark-steyn?pg=1) of Obama's ridiculously disingenuous Osawatomie speech...

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

Mickey's drug war prediction was slightly off, he should have said the violence will be escalated with guns supplied by Obama's DOJ, resulting not in anyone taking responsibility but cries of racism...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

One of the better things about SciSat is there is always a chuckle or two to be had. Hopefully more 'hints' will be forthcoming.

Re: Images On Your Eyeballs (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Keep believing the propaganda, as the socialist model is failing miserably (http://articles.boston.com/2011-12-12/lifestyle/30505645_1_health-bill-health-jobs-hospitals). All those Canadians and...

Re: Images On Your Eyeballs (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

"Drank and smoked a lot" does not begin to cover it, based on what I've read and observed over the years. He seemed at least the equal of Dean Martin and Edward R Murrow regarding the ever-lit...

Re: Images On Your Eyeballs (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Nice tribute to Hitch Megan, shooting with the bar in the background (did you sweeten the Diet Coke?).

Christopher Hitchens

I've read and heard many words about Christopher Hitchens this past day and a half but "wrong about it all" are certainly the most ludicrous.

Re: Christopher Hitchens

I'll have to listen again (havent done so since I first heard it) because I thought he just got half-hearted, I didn't pick up on the reversal.

Re: Christopher Hitchens

His list of greatest hits is pretty long but I would offer his speeches (many at the Commonwealth Club and available online) on Orwell, North Korea, Iraq, Thomas Paine etc.

Re: Blast From the Past (Timothy Noah & Rich Lowry)

As to income inequality, I just read something the other day that was a great truth. If I remember the link I'll re-post.

Re: Blast From the Past (Timothy Noah & Rich Lowry)

Gingrich too risky? As opposed to say....Chairman Zero?

Don't like Gingrich much at all, don't trust him much at all. But compared to the Disaster-In-Chief he's Lincoln.

Re: Science Saturday: Civilized Violence (Maggie Koerth-Baker & Jessa Gamble)

Interesting that one of the subject lines is "Tricking people into believing the truth". A more accurate wording would be "into supporting the cause"
It echoes back to these boards where the clique...

Re: The Week in Blog: Politics of Cool (Bill Scher & Matt K. Lewis)

Mr "57 States" should tackle arithmetic before he goes on to the (for him) heavy stuff.

After that, he can go after "corpsman" and geography (hawaii as part of asia and the "english embassy").
