Re: Non-Bloodthirsty Edition (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

The torture discussion was revolting. Glenn thinks torture should go unprosecuted because... the U.S. has done lots of terrible stuff. And John's position seems to be that we anti-torture nuts are...

Re: Percontations: What Is Time? (Julian Barbour & Craig Callender)

This was excellent. Mr. Barbour was very easy to understand and did something that few bloggingheads do: cut a paragraph short after a few minutes, out of a desire not to monopolize the conversation.

Re: Yuletide Cheer Edition

I'm always grateful for Jim "A Cop Watching Every Mosque" Pinkerton's thoughts on religious pluralism.

Re: Performed Intelligence

I thought Glenn's characterization of John's critique of McCain as ad hominem was bizarre. He was saying that McCain wasn't making very convincing arguments! Is that below the belt now, or...

The Ferraro Counterfactual

I don't think it's crazy to speculate that, were it possible to establish empirically, Obama's race on balance helped him. But it's not, as McWhorter characterizes it at one point, a fact. And I...

Great diavlog

And Farley was an excellent interlocutor.

Re: This Week in Blog: Conservative Crackup

I think Bill went too far in trying to deny the economic cost of limiting carbon emissions, and in trying to deny that Obama has really started putting the rabbit back in the hat when it comes to...

Re: The Lecture

I wish people would stop defending Mickey by saying his critics just want him to be an orthodox liberal. That's not the problem. It's the dishonesty, stupid.

Imagine a guy who goes bowling all...

Ann's principled stand against comment censorship

She's a total hypocrite on the subject of comment censorship. I had a series of comments "expunged" from Ann's blog when I pointed out that she had just openly admitted that she didn't know anything...

Ms. Merritt

I'm sorry. I admire her zeal, but one nice thing about BH.tv is that there's a generally pretty high level of intellectual honesty. I disagree with Eli Lake but you don't get the feeling listening to...

Pinkerton is a whack job

Is it intolerant of me to wish this racist freak had one fewer platform?

Re: MSM in the tank in general

I kind of agree. I don't know why she's so determined to defend McCain and the coverage of him, but it leads her to say things which go beyond naive to childish.

...and that bit at the end where...

Re: McCain's "Al Qaeda" Remark

No, that's ridiculous. The president of the United States need to understand what's going on in the Middle East on a more granular level than Muslims = Bad Guys. "Who can tell the difference?" is a...

Re: MSM = Media Supporting McCain?

Good pairing. I like Greenwald a lot, and Cox is the by far the best of the Swamplanders.

The big problem with it is that Cox clearly knows that Glenn is the most vitriolic scourge of the MSM from...

Goldfarb

So this guy's m.o. is pretty straightforward: in the face of facts which are troublesome to the Weekly Standard worldview (of which there are many), just insist that "I'm not convinced" or "That's...
