James Ledbetter of Slate hypes immigration as a cure-all, despite reality - 09/09/10

... link or by others. 3. He thinks Kevin Drum is an "economic blogger", linking to [1]. 4. One of Ledbetter's sections is entitled "Immigrants will solve our housing crisis" and contains "So, goes the argument, let's open the borders to immigrants who promise to buy a house". Which is close to the definition of insanity since immigrants buying houses may have played a major role in the housing...

Kevin Drum/Washington Monthly deletes yet another comment (Obama's Global Poverty Act) - 08/06/08

Kevin Drum obviously doesn't want his readers to know how much of a hack he is, since either he or someone else at Washington Monthly keep deleting comments from me and apparently from others as well. The latest in this long line was left earlier today on a post about Barack Obama's Global Poverty Act. It was left on washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2008_08/014237.php, which links to...

Washington Monthly deletes yet another comment, again - 05/25/08

... apparently others) leave there. Kevin Drum is apparently on vacation so I don't know whether he popped in just to delete the comment I left earlier today on this thread: washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2008_05/013790.php. The author is "Hilzoy" of the blog "Obsidian Wings" who cross-posted it here: obsidianwings.blogs.com/obsidian_wings/2008/05/taking-tough-ac.html I left the comment...

Eve Fairbanks misleads about Wikipedia (+Kevin Drum) - 04/15/08

... it is a strong indicator, as Kevin Drum [1] approvingly directs our attention to the post from Eve Fairbanks [2] of the New Republic (also home to Jim Kirchik and Jason Zengerle). She discusses a subscriber-only National Review article (link) called "Liberal Web" which discusses liberal bias at WP, and says: while I hadn't perceived anti-conservative bias on Wikipedia's political pages, I wanted...

Kevin Drum/Washington Monthly deletes yet another comment - 03/25/08

Kevin Drum and/or the Washington Monthly have a habit of deleting perfectly reasonable comments; because of that you can't trust anything you read there. Comments sections serve as a form of check on the blogger or reporter; if they make a mistake someone will probably come along to point it out. If - like Kevin Drum and/or WM - they start deleting comments you never know what's missing, and it...

Should you drop your links to Washington Monthly and Calpundit? - 03/25/07

... Washington Monthly and Calpundit.com (Kevin Drum of WM's former site): many of those entries are clogged with spammmm. That's OK if you don't mind linking to pages filled with spammmy keywords and links, but as for me I suspect that search engines might put me in the same neighborhood as the comments to be found at calpundit.com/archives/002525.html (Warning: the comments and links there are...

Washington Monthly desperate enough to edit comments without noting they were edited - 03/18/07

... here] Washington Monthly ("WM"; Kevin Drum/Political Animal, washingtonmonthly. com) used to have an open commenting policy, and I've been posting the occasional and almost always critical comment at that site since Drum moved there and at his previous location (calpundit.com) since 2002 or 2003. WM recently changed to some form of post-moderation of comments. Unlike almost everyone else...

The view from Kevin Drum's window - 05/22/06

Kevin Drum informs us (washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2006_05/008869.php) that Sully is asking his readers to send in pictures from the windows of the cubicle whence they encumber the world with their thoughts. Rather than provide my own, I decided to make a slight modification to the picture that Drum is good enough to provide. It's only a slight modification, so look closely:

Reconquista introduction, video - 04/17/06

Even as...

Dubai: DHS, Treasury didn't check DPW's links to al Qaeda - 03/02/06

From this: A review of a United Arab Emirates-owned company's plan to take over a portion of operations at key U.S. ports never looked into whether the company had ties to al Qaeda or other terrorists, a key Republican lawmaker told CNN on Wednesday. Rep.

... suddenly disreputable Captain Kevin Drum: washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2005_04/006068.php) The second picture is of a robot jockey being tested in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Captain says about as much about this as I do, but it's quite possible he's more interested in the neat-o techology of robot jockeys than the subtext. Of course, if it were, say, Swedes who gathered around a robot...

They used to have a soft serve ice cream machine and - whatever you want to call me that I am - I moved the tray that was under the nozzle and designed to catch dripping ice cream... Anyway, so there was this metal tray there and I slid it out so I could keep filling...

Watching "liberals" self-destruct - 04/26/04

Captain Kevin Drum invites (washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2004_04/003786.php) Bruce Reed, "Bill Clinton's chief domestic policy advisor for eight years and now president of the Democratic Leadership Council" to write a guest post: washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2004_04/003785.php The guest post is reasonable, and suggests that "liberals" encourage the creation of a "...

What holds us VRWC members together? - 04/18/04

"Captain" Kevin Drum sets to sea in a quest (washingtonmonthly. com/archives/individual/2004_04/003720.php) to determine what holds us "conservatives" together. Why do we think this way? Is there any way to prevent us from thinking this way? Can we somehow be taught to think the right way? Herewith are some of the main things holding us VRWC members together: Hatred of "liberals." Hatred of Mark...
