Re: After Massachusetts (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

"The collapse of the Democratic Party and the entire liberal project." Yeah, between that and your comment, I've just stopped watching this a minute in.

Re: Special Fatalism Edition (Chris Hayes & Tim Carney)

I wonder if the "Blue vs. Red" look of this diavlog was an accident, or is this some newfangled method of identifying the guests' political allegiances?

Re: Flying Cars Edition (David Corn & Jim Pinkerton)

It's crucial to understand that this isn't a rare slip, this isn't some embarrassing deviation; if you don't believe lunatic shit like this, you can't be a conservative. If you accept proclaimed...

Re: Is anyone bothered by taxes on stupidity?

If you're a diehard, rational-choice, homo economicus type, you can always claim that the entertainment value people get out of playing the lottery compensates for the house advantage.

Re: Muslim, It's The Apt Word

You say potato, I say potąto. He may be a hack but he was in charge of the CFR for ten years, he's got a Pulitzer, he runs a "progressive" (read: liberal hawk) think tank from which most of Obama's...

Re: Muslim, It's The Apt Word

Yeah, I'd have to say the guy's basic thesis is about the only thing in the whole piece that makes a damn bit of sense. Here we have a guy who was the President of the world's most influential...

Re: Parting Ways With the Right (Charles Johnson & Conn Carroll)

Okay, I'm 28 minutes in, and I count twice now that Conn Carroll has interrupted with a largely irrelevant, cynical conservative talking point. At 22:26, as CJ starts to explain that creationism is a...

Re: My Lyle Problem -- And Ours

A rational person might see that as evidence of what exactly this community wants and doesn't want to read, and act accordingly.



Best quote from this one:

My Lyle Problem -- And Ours

Dear Lyle.

I know that you are a veteran poster here, while I am just some guy who occasionally drops in. So perhaps it is presumptuous of me to criticize your conduct on these forums. With that...

Canada Gets Weird, pt 2

What the hell? Our Prime Minister just locked the doors to parliament, again. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/16533) And this time there weren't any coalition of opposition parties afoot -- no, it...

Re: One Man's Meat (Robert Wright & Christopher Hitchens)

Ideology is bad? As opposed to what?

The answers generated by scientific methods are generally far more useful and compelling than those generated by non-scientific methods. The general adoption...

Re: The Sunshine Boys (Joe Klein & David Frum)

Actually, Harkin, the mortality rates are very similar. The difference is in the survival rates. That sounds like a paradox, but it isn't - because mortality is defined by the percentage of people...

Re: Clash of the Civilized (Robert Wright & Christopher Hitchens)

First of all Hitchens didn't base his argument on any of this; he claimed that the invasion was legal a priori and not that it was tacitly legitimated after the fact.

Secondly the argument that...

Re: Clash of the Civilized (Robert Wright & Christopher Hitchens)

Hitchens's substantive claims about international law, beginning at 18:58, are utterly, transparently false. Not only is it not "generally thought" that states "lose their sovereignty" under any of...

Re: UN Plaza: Somalia (Mark Leon Goldberg & Erin Weir)

Okay, maybe "Refugees International" does wonderful work, maybe they're all great people, etc. But this guest is awfully mealy-mouthed. She says, "In the United States, there was resistance to...

Re: UN Plaza: Pay Attention to Sri Lanka!

Uh, Duoist? The Sri Lankan gov't is center-left, while the Tigers are Marxist-Leninist, so your point about the U.N.'s leftist bias seems dubious.
