Default Re: Lame Duck Edition (Gabriel Arana & Conn Carroll)

You know that it's a bad omen when after a mere 10 minutes into a diavlog with Conn Carroll, he begins to sound comparatively coherent and reasonable; if forced to listen to any more of Arana's indignant and inarticulate sputtering, I would probably have set myself on fire. Carroll isn't a particularly effective expositor of his own worldview IMO, but he seems to practically hum with brilliance compared to Arana, with whom I would probably be very inclined to agree on things like immigration reform and DADT. I've seen Adam Serwer on Bloggingheads quite a few times, and he suffers from the same "I can't make an articulate point, stay on topic or say anything other than uninteresting boilerplate talking point blather" problem. Can't Bloggingheads get someone decent from The American Prospect, an often very decent publication?
