Re: Beta Extension: Show Comment Counts

1) Are you using an up-to-date version of Chrome? Windows?

Re: For Beta Testing: Chrome Extension Highlights New Comments in Disqus

Well, that's a doozy of a fail.

I've updated the links. But I think that you may have to make the download "Show in Folder" and then drag the file onto the Chrome shortcut on the taskbar. It...

For Beta Testing: Chrome Extension Highlights New Comments in Disqus

One of the most annoying "features" of Disqus is that it doesn't indicate which comments are old and which are new. So I wrote a browser extension for Google Chrome that highlights all comments made...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Yep. It looks broken. It was probably generated by the old Content Management System (CMS), and the feeds in the new CMS haven't been set up yet.

I am guessing they should ultimately appear at...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

It appears that Disqus makes it pretty easy to follow particular commenters (something I am already wont to do) and the "like" button has the effect of reposting the comment in question to all the...

Re: Iowa (David Weigel & Benjy Sarlin)

Chris Matthews doesn't need perspective, he needs to embrace being a caricature of himself. (Obligatory clip from "Network" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMBZDwf9dok))

Re: Iowa!

Technically, Iowa is a straw poll. No delegates are awarded.

The caucuses will elect delegates to the local conventions, which will elect delegates to regional and state conventions, which will...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

It is not uncommon to see libertarian principles explicitly and systematically justified and defined by means of arguments appealing the Rawlsian original position. E.g., Richard Epstein, Simple...

Re: @Disqus

My guess is that the old diavlogs wil continue to link to these forums, so that they will be preserved in some form.

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

In the particular discussion of macroeconomic theory at hand, the existence and meaning of "sticky wages" refers to something more fundamental and pervasive in labor relations than minimum wage laws,...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

I'm skeptical that the heart of it. Nothing in my post was meant to imply that the middle class is a niche group and not the majority of people. The point is that whatever is your economy's current...

Re: Predictions for 2012?

I predict: the winning candidate in the 2012 general election for President of the United States will not receive an absolute majority of the popular vote.

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

How do we shoehorn this into the progressive narrative?[/QUOTE]

No shoe-horning necessary.

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

Sure, but we also say that a pregnant woman is "with child" or "carrying my child" or "having my baby." When we talk about a fetus, we typically say "the baby just kicked" or "what is your baby's...

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

Putting aside the merits of the claim for a moment, I think the argument that abortion represents decadence is an entirely coherent and cognizable one.

If you think of a fetus as at least the...
