pretty fertile: The War on Nixon

the word "enjoyed" here -- those blackguards!:

In sum, Bradlee-Woodstein bloodlessly assassinated the president, routinized the criminalization of policy and partisan differences, grievously wounded the institution of the presidency, and enjoyed and profited from doing so.

also lol this comment:

The only difference between Stalins [show trials] and Watergate's was the the body count.

but probably my subtle favorite:

And perhaps the all-time nadir in American presidential-election ethics was achieved in 1968, when Lyndon Johnson tried to salvage the election for his vice president, Hubert Humphrey, with a completely imaginary claim of a peace breakthrough in the Vietnam talks a few days before the election.

If I was Mitt Romney, I would not debate Obama. I would not give the blackguard the opportunity to look presidential. I would state that, however. We would just never be able to find a mutually agreeable format.

ok a little bit ago, NR published an article by Matthew Schmitz, an editor at "first things", about how the "anti-sharia" types need to cool it

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/302280/fears-creeping-sharia-matthew-schmitz

and a follow-up blog post

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/303135/anti-sharia-laws-are-magic-matthew-schmitz

(great title). that of course let to a bunch of crossing posts from andrew mccarthy and andrew bostom (another one of these sharia experts we have running around now).

but also some by david yerushalmi, which is kind of a blast from the past:

Into the Sewer: the American right wing, 2011

here's his crazy website again:

one of yerushalmi's responses:

and a comment thereupon:

Oh yeah, one more thing: is it true that Mr. Yerushalmi's group SANEworks espouses the following ideas:

- It shall be a felony punishable by 20 years in prison to knowingly act in furtherance of, or to support the, adherence to Islam.

- The Congress of the United States of America shall declare the US at war with the Muslim Nation or Umma.

- The President of the United States of America shall immediately declare that all non-US citizen Muslims are Alien Enemies under Chapter 3 of Title 50 of the US Code and shall be subject to immediate deportation.

- No Muslim shall be granted an entry visa into the United States of America.

If the above is true, does National Review also support these ideas? Get back to me when you can. No rush.

Enjoy your afternoon!

Loved Schmitz's post. Great title.

Last line from crazpants' retort: But no reasonable man builds an argument in this way if he seeks reasoned debate, unless of course he is a student of Thrasymachus.

Dude is v silly and unreadable to the point of pain.

This is The Corner as it was: A bubbling brook of inanity punctuated occasionally by particularly vile or bizarre Jonah Goldberg asking readers to write his column for him, then posting their responses. Ramesh Ponnuru carrying on reasonably intelligent dialogues with non-NR contributors. K-Lo posting one-sentence links to news articles and constantly hyping the godforsaken National Review Cruise. John Derbyshire popping in to be odd, at length. Lopez defending raving anti-semite loon Mel Gibson against the charge that he is as bad as Michael Moore.

(To be fair, most political blogging used to be like this, back then. Ninety percent of the political blogosphere in Bush’s first term was bored asshole lawyers posting pictures of their mountain bikes in between urgent calls for the immediate toppling of Saddam Hussein.)

It’s sort of always been apparent that no one she worked with actually had any respect for her. Her joshing around with Jonah Goldberg, the Corner contributor closest to her emotional and intellectual level, was slightly sad.

Touré gets his ass handed to him by conservative drone, sez Michael Walsh. The comments, as usual, are a hoot.

I thought Toure wrote record reviews. So he gave a jokey intro to Harry Potter's cousin and then the guy threw out a bunch of talking points.

Harry Potter's cousin made spurious arguments anyway. Why does it matter that kids are moving back in with their parents -- how would it make them more conservative? What if their parents are liberals?

Mordy, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 18:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

The only thing worth reading in days. As usua though the definitions don't square with how I understand liberalism and conservatism. Do liberals really look for ideas? Do conservatives accept the world as it is?

a regina spektor is haunting europe (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 27 June 2012 19:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

I have not been reading that regularly but has that writer ever acknowledged who came up with the mandate idea, and then squared it with the current stances? Has he been making strong constitutional arguments re the alleged unconstitutionality of the mandate?

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 19:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

If confronted and responds in good faith he might say that Orrin Hatch et al were wrong to support this liberal aberration in the nineties (doesn't he say something about getting caught up lib/con schema? I'm not going to read it again).

a regina spektor is haunting europe (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 27 June 2012 19:32 (1 year ago) Permalink

That's probably right. I think Republicans when confronted re economics from Reagan through the Bushes like to say that anything that went wrong was due to aberrations (plus blaming Freddie Mac) from true purist conservatism.

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 19:41 (1 year ago) Permalink

isn't it held up as an example of the bad ideas you come up with while trying to find common ground with the evil dems?

That too.

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 20:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

But it does so at a significant political cost. First, those who dislike the mandate — which includes a majority of U.S. voters — will now have no recourse but to vote for Mitt Romney to repeal it.

Yes, keep telling yourself that.

I wish you were right and hope so, but whoda thunk it that Roberts would vote to uphold & Kennedy strike it! If that can happen, this is a Bizarro world where anything can happen, as Dostoyevsky said about any country that abandons the true God, which of course papists like Roberts have done, even though in this case the others weren't presently affected.

It is not news that most liberals regard the courts as a bulwark against public opinion, and that they celebrate the judiciary’s capacity to detach itself from the mainstream. What is more striking is the evolving liberal ideal that the overall political process need not and should not mimic popular sentiment either. Why bother, when reputation-sensitive elites can be persuaded without relying on a ballot — simply by invoking their desire to align with “history” and their skittishness about following the “uninformed”?

Gay marriage furthers the disconnection of marriage from procreation; it helps in an ongoing way to sever the link between sex and diapers.

Interesting that be phrased it that way. Progressivism methodically combines elements of mob rule and dictatorship -- the two things the Founders most wanted to avoid.
Of course, Obama doesn't mind majoritarian rule when it empowers him and his cronies. Even if he has to usurp the people's liberties.
