Re: Obama Disillusionment Edition (Joshua Cohen & Brink Lindsey)

...and that's self-evidently true, then? I mean, there aren't any offsetting gains inherent in free-er trade, etc., your cited measure is most definitely, certainly, obviously true? I dunno, seems...

Re: Obama Disillusionment Edition

I thought more theater workshop, but it's a timeless look.

Re: A Blogging head Toastmaster

That's funny, I sat in on a Toastmaster meeting yesterday and thought it was funny that they have a designated "Ahh counter" for every meeting. If you're dedicated enough you could give us stats on...

Re: Obama Disillusionment Edition

Haven't stopped by in a while in part from displeasure at what I thought was an overabundance of the attitude Mr. Cohen here disparages in the BH forums leading up to and since the last election,...

Re: Strictly personal opinion (mine)

I heard that, too, and since I didn't hear much else the effect was to say "this is some stuff we think could be true but aren't going to make much of a case for: it's based on some things we've...

Strictly personal opinion (mine)

I did not have much of an opinion of either 'head prior to watching (other than a vague impression of not caring too much for Bazelon's work at Slate without being able to recall specific examples)...

Re: Let's Talk About Talking About Race

I mean, I guess...but at that point we're deeply into chicken-egging (one of my preferred terms for having descended into circularity, if you care to know) and I'm not sure how viewing things in this...

Re: Let's Talk About Talking About Race

That's probably not how you want to talk about it, though, 'cause then we're back to calling something (the status quo, say) tyranny, and of course no right thinking person supports tyranny.

Goldberg's Great Save

Check out Jonah ALMOST saying "step off the plantation" here (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/17925?in=07:03&out=07:09), then realizing this probably isn't the time for that particular phrase, and...

Re: Let's Talk About Talking About Race

Popcorn:

When you object to Jonah's use of the word aggression here:
you're assuming that "aggresssion" in this sense should carry negative connotations. Goldberg's pretty clearly NOT saying...

Re: Canadian Bacon

Compare and contrast indeed. The actual loans and foreclosures aren't the whole story, but it's the part people seem to talk about the most, and a large part of THAT story is LTV.

Do go on.

This was an interesting Diavlog, but neither 'head really explored the ideas and topics they mentioned. From Prof. Shiller I wanted to hear what kinds of salutary effects he expects from his...

Re: The Sadness of Conservatism

Do you happen to have a link handy, to save some time, or do you mean all of Mr. Goldberg's arguments? Where does one file for an insanity patent, I wonder--there must be a number of government...

Re: Unbelievably Bad

Oh, I have a feeling you're roughly correct, it's just that I don't know how one disentangles support to the degree your statment requires--knowing WHY different portions of a politician/posistion's...

Oh, there's not much doubt that the two Senators running are, like many Senators, up to their necks in money and favor-peddling with these and other interest groups, but this:

Re: Unbelievably Bad

I don't know if it's "fair" to say that, but I'd bet you're right that a large-ish portion of that 45% isn't so much pro-McCain as anti-Obama--even if that portion were half, though, that'd leave...

Re: Unbelievably Bad

That's funny, but really? Most of the (decent) polls (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/us/general_election_mccain_vs_obama-225.html) have Sen. Obama up 5-7 points, but surely...
