Re: Meet a Tea Partier (Robert Wright & Rob Neppell)

Mr. Wright criticizes the Tea Party's lack of common ground about 16 minutes in, citing the attendees of Tea Party events who aren't necessarily fiscal conservatives. It's a fairly valid criticism,...

Re: Science Saturday: The Mysterious Depths of the Universe

Ha, I thought it was just some running gag where a blogging head would say "They'll edit it out" and it never gets edited out.

Re: Render Unto Obama

Great diavlog.

I think energy will be a big voting issue in the Fall. In summer 2004, people were upset over $2/ gallon gas. In four years, the price doubled! Furthermore, we weren't in a...

Re: Summer Movie Extravaganza

As for why superhero films are the big thing recently, I definitely agree that the simple good vs. evil paradigm resonates with Americans. I do think a bigger cause might be that comic books are...

Re: Michelle Obama's Arms

Unless the titles of the topics are satirical, I don't think I'll be watching this one. I come to BH to get away from the banal dialog about Cindy McCain's cookies, etc... I'm not opposed to a...

Re: Afterthought

Rap music can have a persuasively stylish packaging and some relatively smart messages.

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

I think Frasier is a schnoodle, (1/2 schnauzer 1/2 poodle). My ex has a dog that looks just like him.

Re: The Good Behavior Game

P.S. I'd love to see more criminal justice-themed diavlogs on here. Really fascinating and the mainstream media does not go deep enough into this subject.

Re: The Good Behavior Game

I hate to join in on the MacDonald bashing-fest (she brings up a lot of relevant points and it makes for a great diavlog, even if you agree more with Kleiman). Nonetheless, I can't let this one...

Re: Science Saturday: Microcosm Edition

Lots of recent blogging heads have been on Colbert lately, Richard Florida, Robert Reich, and now Mr. Johnson. That was a great interview, btw. Congrats. And now I have to add Zimmer's book to my...

Horse Race Politics

I was starting to think, isn't the horse race trend playing into spinsters who don't want the discourse to be issues? Then I realized we have reason to doubt where all of the contenders really stand...

Re: Obama's Problems: FL & MI

What about "Florida and Michigan weren't truly represented by the outcomes in the primaries?" I don't think that's too complex an argument for the general public to latch on to. Not only that, it...

Re: Obama's alleged "cockiness" and "pride"

Is back-paddling and apologizing a wise thing to do politically? I prefer Obama's strategy of clarifying the intent of his statements and standing tall. Kinda like the John Wayne trait: even when...

Re: How Iraq is Like Hip Hop

Re: Calling Obama "Barry"... Isn't this is kind of like calling Kunta Kinte "Toby"?? Have a lot of anti-Obama people been doing this?

Re: Facts on the Ground

I was thinking about Hillary's teary-eyed tirade about how she "knows what is at stake." Given that Bill probably had her read Nonzero, does anyone...

Re: Free Will: The Internet Age Edition

One thought on advertising as "spinach." Isn't that how television advertisement has worked for decades?

Re: 2nd Annual Bloggingchefs: Liberal vs. Libertarian Rematch

Interesting subject as I was preparing my Vvalentine's Day Feast prior to watching this (the extra "v" is for vegan*). Ironically enough, I'm making seitan steaks (approximately pronounced...

Re: Problems with video playback

Ditto. But I did just install the latest flash plug-in, so I'll see if that helps.

Re: Problems with video playback

Re: Faith, Reason and Happiness

That's a great point. An atheist counterpoint to that would be that one doesn't need religion to reach that kind of life. Bob Wright makes a strong case for helping others and detachment from the...

Re: The Uninvited Guest

The heavy focus on WMD's was certainly a political mistake, but I would consider using unconfirmed reports to create a connection to Al-Qaeda the nail in the coffin. At the time, I had heard...
