A veritable Instapundit classic today: You know, the more I look at the new, Dean-channeling Kerry, the more I think that he doesn’t expect to win. He’s given up trying to convince swing voters that he’s serious on the war. I think this is about firing up the base to protect down-ticket candidates as much as […]

I don’t know why I forget to read them for months at a time. This one renders all past and future David Brooks mockery obsolete. via Pandagon. Share

I’m satisfied with the blogospheric account of the huge Bush lead in Gallup (signifigant oversampling of GOP, based on some crack-smokingly incomprehensible sample adjustment methodology). Now c

I am pleased to note that the fine folks at W.W. Norton sent me a copy of the 9/11 commission report, unsolicited but welcomed. In addition, Phillip Roth’s new novel The Plot Against America–which I’ve been looking forward to for months–was in stock at the local bookstore. (Read his fascinating account of the novel’s genesis here.) And […]

At some point in my life, I was mildly amused by some scenes in a National Lampoon movie, the one with Chevy Chase. I can’t speak for most of their releases, except to say that they look pretty

This little item from Kos is interesting, and gives me an excuse to relate a dream I recently. In the dream, I was lazing about the house one morning, and turned on CNN. So far, the dream is dogme-95

Circumstantial evidence suggests that The Ethicist(tm) might be listening to my advice (or Paperwight). Still, I’m not in the mood to be terribly magnanimous. The first two “corrections” offered this week deal with private property as opposed to other social goods. First, he reassesses his views on the ever-crucial question of the mutilation of Medieval texts (doesn’t he […]

Kos asks if he has no shame. The answer is clearly no, but the more interesting question is has he ever looked at voting demographics in this country? Share

I had no idea about this, which I find fascinating. If I’m ever called upon to teach American political development/history and the 1896 election comes up, you can bet this’ll be in my le
