Re: Special Unemployment Edition (Dave Weigel & David Frum)

Pity the poor liberals. For eight years, they got to have a fun-filled hate fest; their most respected pundits casually remarked that Bush stole his first election (Kinsley), that he was a habitual...

Re: The Week in Blog: Hug It Out (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

"In fact, the fight over Bork's nomination, noisy and voluble as it was, never departed from the issues of constitutional interpretation..."

Re: Forbidden Topics (Matthew Yglesias & Glenn Loury)

"That is what I will be doing as a Jew and pacifist..."

Ah yes, a pacifist. My definition of a pacifist: a person who stands by helplessly shrugging their shoulders as they cart your children off...

Re: The Week in Blog: Uninvited Edition (Tim Fernholz & Matt Lewis)

Oh my lord, why can't liberals get this situation straight? Crowley did NOT try to arrest Gates for burglary. Ever. Gates was arrested because he kept yelling and screaming at the policeman, as a...

Re: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Emily Bazelon & Farai Chideya)

This is appalling. A cursory reading of the police report shows that there was no racism involved, that Mr. Gates behaved belligerently toward a policeman who was only doing his job. A potential...

Re: A Diavlog You Can't Refuse (Eli Lake & John Hulsman)

Mr. Hulsman's GODFATHER analysis seems selective. In fact, despite Michael's statement about things changing, the way he deals with the "new" issues turning the other families against the Corleones...

Re: The Making of the Conservative Movement

This is astonishing - two leftists trying to talk themselves into believing that there's nothing to conservatism but bigotry and corporate manipulation. It reminds me of the scene in THE WIZARD OF OZ...

To reply to some of the nonsense that has been posted on the Gaza issue:

Re: Slippery Issues

Mr. Loury does seem to be an eager audience for Arab propaganda; if only he had a partner who could inform him that civilians are getting killed because Hamas deliberately locates its military...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

I love this - liberalism as thoughtful, idealistic and intellectual opposed to conservative "yahoos" - followed by exulting over Obama "kicking McCain's ass." Can these guys hear themselves?

Re: Social Science in the City

I disagree - her anecdotes here showed that she has done a lot of shoe leather research, talking to actual people coping with these issues in communities. As opposed to commenting on high from an...
