Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Congratulations, Bob. And Brenda, Mickey, Greg, all the other people involved in this that I don't know about.

I found you guys in the fall of '05, at a pretty awful point in my life, and for...

Re: The Postmodern Sex Scandal (Dana Goldstein & Amanda Marcotte)

In what way is it not "fun to be sexy at work"? Unwanted, direct sexual advances at work aren't okay, but sex is part of life and it's nuts to imagine that we can turn it off completely for 8 or 10...

Re: Flugelhorn Edition (Conor Friedersdorf & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

Conor is one of my new favorites. I like Katherine here, too.

Re: Failures to Communicate

This is definitely my favorite of the retrospectives, despite the amazing "Fire" montage. I love the editing -- the timing of the cut from Corn/York to Goldberg/Althouse, giving Dresner a chance to...

Re: Realms of Hazy Phenomenology (Reihan Salam & Lev Grossman)

I think this was my favorite diavlog in the last year or so.

Re: Picking Up the Gauntlet (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Part of it is that Bob is so clearly in such a good mood when he's talking to Mickey. The variation in Bob's comfort level (where 1=Andrew Sullivan, 3=Mike Kinsley, 9=Joel and 10=Mickey) is one of...

Re: Main Damies (Ross Douthat & Reihan Salam)

Rossism in a nutshell (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/28057?in=32:19&out=32:21).

Seriously, though, I was practically fist-pumping when I saw these guys together again. And I definitely giggled...

Re: Science Saturday: Looking for Love (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I'm INTP. Jesus, that's a lot of N's. I wonder if it's a reflection of Internet users, BHTV viewers or commenters.

My heart goes out to John (and Suzie). John is visibly sad through a lot of this...

Re: A Satisfying Deliverance (Dana Stevens & David Edelstein)

When I pulled up the page, I literally shouted, "DANA!"

Two of my favorite critics on the planet.

Re: The Death of Macho (Chris Hayes & Reihan Salam)

As a member of the coveted younger demographic, I'll throw whatever weight I can behind the continued appearance of free conversations between these two smart younguns.

Re: Life Experience Edition (Dayo Olopade & Reihan Salam)

trouble in Tuvalu

I'm not sure either of these guys is reliably disinterested in global warming.

Bob has too much invested in stopping it, and Mickey has too much incentive to accelerate it...

Re: Science Saturday: Bonobo Nature

This bit of heartfelt folk wisdom (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/18197?in=63:31&out=64:10) from Horgan has really made me feel better for the last month or so.

Re: Summer Movie Extravaganza

Bring these guys back for the Oscars, won't you? Chris Orr was good, too. But honestly I wouldn't want him to replace Dana. What can I say? She's easy on the eyes.

Re: The Meta Debate

I don't know about that, Allbetsareoff -- I tend to think that the shift toward "objective" news wasn't a cultural shift but an economic one -- in the early 20th century, news became more (a)...

Re: The Meta Debate

Nikkibong, I don't think Matt suggested that the profit motive is the only goal, just a primary goal. I agree with that. For-profit means for-profit.

Anyway, it's not true that the surest road to...

Re: The Meta Debate

Matt claims that general-interest newspapers "strive to be dull (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/17045?in=18:55&out=19:34)."

Obviously he's being flippant, but I don't think that's even an...

Re: Airborne Footwear Edition

Ana says (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/16598?in=10:41&out=10:51) the Bush years would tend to "radicalize people," pushing them to the left. This hasn't been true for me, and I don't think it's...

Resolved: Reihan Salam is not human

If Reihan is not some sort of superintelligent Moon-man, I'm convinced that he's at least a time traveler who's found a way to operate at a higher RPM than the rest of us mortals.

bully pulpit

Rob says the bully pulpit doesn't exist. Interesting idea! Obviously wrong! If Bush, Cheney and Iraq have taught us anything, it's the power of the pulpit.

Seriously, public opinion went from 0 to...
