Re: Downgrade (Mark Kleiman & Peter Cohan)

"Nearly 100,000 local government employees have lost their jobs so far this year, and 464,000 have found themselves jobless since local government employment peaked in September 2008. Meanwhile,...

Re: Quinquennial Edition (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

One of the best things about the rally (I watched it online) was how it preempted criticism by mocking the way the media normally covers rallies.

One of the first things Stewart said was all...

Re: Standard Deviations (Robert Wright & Jonah Goldberg)

But where should he move it that would be acceptable? Five blocks from the WTC site? Ten? Above Canal Street? 14th Street? Jersey City? The Mason-Dixon Line?

Re: Special Posh Edition (Hanna Rosin & Ann Friedman)

So I take it you'd be in favor of denying civil marriage rights to couples who are infertile or past child-bearing age?

Re: Friedersdorf Weigel redux

You and Breitbart are wrong. Will Saletan goes through the video line by line (http://www.slate.com/id/2261552/) and debunks this as a lie.

The breadcrust drinking game

Are you tired of the constant, monotonous posting of the forum's most prolific scientific racist? I've devised a little drinking game to help you out. (Warning: If you're not an East Asian or an...

Sorry, John

Your (and your girlfriend's) interpretation of the Lost finale is wrong. The island wasn't purgatory--everything that happened on the island happened. But the "flash sideways" universe was a sort...

Why is Lyle so happy?

Lyle, you seem pretty gleeful in this thread, and I'm not sure why.

Perhaps its because you support Israel and think that the footage showing the soldiers being attacked proves that Israel was in...

Re: Oh, forget that whole "I served in Vietnam" bit

Can this finally put to rest the charge that the NYT is guilty of left-wing bias? They broke the Spitzer prostitution story, bringing down the Democratic governor of NY. Then they broke the story...

The Goldberg Code

After watching many Jonah Goldberg diavlogs, I've noticed a telling tick: he expresses casual disdain with the phrase "all the rest." Examples from just the first five minutes here...

Re: Political Matter and Antimatter (Jon Chait & Ramesh Ponnuru)

One question: how do you keep your boat safely docked at the head of the pier if it's filled with air?

I guess if your pier was too full of air, it would float away, and you'd be pierless.

Re: Tiger's Burning Plight (Robert Wright & Robert Cullen)

The New Heaven

The discussion of boredom as an objection to immortality immediately made me think of a very good book I recently read, Julian Barnes's "A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters."

Re: Commenter Court: The Return (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

I remember reading this when it was published, thanks for digging it up. Some of the lines he quotes are beyond parody: "A strong bond holds America together, but a minimal one. An attachment of...

Re: On Goats

There's actually an argument that kinda makes sense in that original post--the sort of mutual high-fiving epitomized by the "blowing goats" joke demonstrates that the Netroots are an insular movement...

Re: On Goats

It was fine to mock him when the rumor seemed outlandish. Once the rumor was proven true, to continue to mock him for it is as stupid as (hypothetical) freepers going after Michelle Obama for hating...

Re: On Goats

Nice euphemism. The number really is virtually zero...unless, of course, you count the rumor that John Edwards had a love child, which was the origin of the goat sex joke, and which strangely enough...

Re: On Goats

I agree that, based on the publicly available evidence, there wasn't any reason to believe Mickey on Edwards (I didn't believe it at the time, either). But my point is that since he was proved...

Re: On Goats

Weak sauce, bj. The point of the goat sex joke was that Mickey was wrong about Edwards. Well, he actually wasn't wrong--everyone who mocked him was wrong! Continuing to use the goat joke is like...

On Goats

The "Mickey Kaus blows goats" meme should officially be retired.

It was started to protest Mickey's wild, constant rumor-mongering about John Edwards having an affair with a woman named Rielle...
