Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I guess the mission is to make bloggingheads a going concern, so that we can restore vBulletin to its rightful status. It's a small price to pay.

Re: Santorum, Romney, Paul

I love this meme that Perry burned silly amounts of money for a 10% showing, when Romney's PAC and Paul's crackpots gave them their wins.

Yes, Perry, the true conservative you can trust with your...

Re: Santorum, Romney, Paul

Unless, of course, your entire strategy is predicated on a big win in Iowa - and you get 5%! I wonder if Bachmann can even hold her seat now.

Re: Santorum, Romney, Paul

Yes, Romney edged Santorum by eight votes.

And, there was the alternative framing: 75% of Iowa voters dissed Romney!

I guess that assumes Bachmann's supporters didn't just flock to Romney, ut...

Re: Ask LBJ, To Rebut Paul

You draw a good distinction between "national security state" and "liberal welfare state". Still, LBJ is the president who extended the New Deal to its maximum extent and was responsible for the Gulf...

Re: Ask LBJ, To Rebut Paul

I was using the word solely in ts denotative sense: "preponderant influence or authority over others." I apologize to the IR profession for not using the usual connotations. Perhaps, I should have...

Santorum, Romney, Paul

Well, Santorum edged out Romney. I guess this means open season on Santorum now. Good news for Romney, because no one will trash him.

Here's to a banner year!

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

Shields' political argument and Matt Stoller's ideological argument are a potent combo for why Paul can't capitalize on his debate skills. Still, it would be fun to see a three-way between Romney,...

Ask LBJ, To Rebut Paul

My condolences to Glenn, and best hopes for Joshua's full recovery. Cancer has just become far too prevalent in American society. It's a damning comment on America's supposed hegemony.

As for...

Re: How to Murder blacks and get away with it - advice from Ron Paul

I definitely wouldn't call you a racist. But, your argument highlights a broader point: there are many different perspectives in the civil rights dialogue, and they are complicated by a wealth of...

Re: Ron Paul is not really running for president

I would argue that Paul is just one narrow stream of the broader deluded Jeffersonian torrent, that creates illusory moral dichotomies between good and evil, and then assigns facts to the tally....

Re: The Bromance (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Agreed. That news just helped rescue the end of 2011 for me. Anything these two can give is very much appreciated.

But, I hope John still does Up with Chris Hayes. There's an art to that format,...

Re: Fearless Predictions (Heather Hurlburt & Daniel Drezner)

Oh, I agree. It's just that within the scope of the one subject area where, given my location now, I can't ignore, I have been really annoyed by the media punting on the future and digging up any...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Thanks for the encouraging news.

How about just sending a Facebook or short email notice about bh.tv's future? It only takes a little composition, and then compiling the list of commenter emails....

Re: Fearless Predictions (Heather Hurlburt & Daniel Drezner)

The audio if isolated at the end as Dan was showing his office sounded like a man being swallowed by his office.

This is another pairing I will really miss. Fortunately, Heather has been on Up...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I'm not going to comment on the future of bh.tv. I just hope I can watch a diavlog a few times a week. And, I really hope there is a Science Saturday-like diavlog on once a week. This is my favorite...

Hitch and Hell

If there is a hell, I think it begins with the sound of an American conservative's voice, like Soltis'. There is nothing more insipid than a college freshman discussion of God's existence. True,...

Some NK Background

I felt after two diavlog segments on North Korea and KJI's demise, the bh family needed some background. I'm actually feeling quite chipper about the odious monster's demise. In no small measure he...

Re: Lessons Learned: Beyond Good and Evil (Robert Wright & Alan Wolfe)

I could be wrong, though. It's also possible Wolfe is setting up an opening for an empirical treatment of the four political evils with a philosophical analysis.

Re: Lessons Learned: Beyond Good and Evil (Robert Wright & Alan Wolfe)

I read a Kindle sample of Wolfe's book before I listened to this diavlog. (Is Bob plugging Kindles and Nooks now? It certainly helps to sample a book before these review-type diavlogs.) I also was...
