Somehow I don’t think my toast will make the Dish, but I think it’s worth putting out there. I came to Andrew’s blog later in its life after seeing him many times on Real Time. I think my feelings on Andrew were similar to many my age who read him: Who is this person who […]


I’ve been feeling alienated from politics recently, and a faux controversy like the one Fox produced on the NBPP is one of the reasons. It just seems so tired. Dave Weigel is guest blogging for Sullivan this week, and he’s weighed in. The top part is him quoting an exchange between Sean Hannity and Malik […]

Money quote: No one does it better than Mark Halperin. Every single thing he cites in his latest brain-dead critique is, I believe, tangibly false, and […]


Via Sullivan, Joyner on Kaus’ Senate run: the mere fact that we’ve accumulated a long paper (pixel?) trail of recording every fool thought that’s passed through our minds over the last several years. Even bright, thoughtful, decent types like Douthat and Klein — and Lord knows, Kaus and Joyner — have written things that would […]
