Pajamas Media’s best commenter

Is this guy named Klavan.  He does “Klavan on culture.”

I’m not so sure I’m into all of PJM’s stuff — especially not international reporters who stay at the most expensive hotels in town while reporting.  But Klavan’s worth a watch.

Here’s Klavan on gay marriage and rationality.  And here, even better, is bumper-sticker patrol (Visiting Artilleryman:  this one’s linked SPECIFICALLY for you, so click it, dude.)

(For those inclined to debate the issues:  fire away in the comments, as long as we all agree to smack Phelps & Co. with fireplace pokers.)

    Heh, saw that one a while back. I would gladly pay taxes for that bit of law enforcement.

  2. We could definitely use them out here. I see that exact sticker at least once per week.

    I do so enjoy intellectual sarcasm. Thanks for posting this.

    Yeah, the only problem is that it continually goes over their heads. I fired a good one at my commie aunt on the Fourth of July and she totally missed the point. And I mean missed as in the shot missed the fort, not the impact zone. Intellectual sarcasm seemed to be a missed point by the so called intellectuals so damn often it is beginning to loose its appeal to me, I like to have some reaction to my quips.

  5. That’s because “leftist” isn’t automatically equivalent to “intellectual,” no matter how many episodes of Morning Edition one listens to.

    Nor does being conservative automatically make one smart either. However Mike, you have a point. I suspect that things like this go over the heads of who it is really directed at and those who agree with it probably just enjoy the commentary but had already bought into the argument going in.

  7. Hey I like morning edition! It’s vastly superior to both of the other available radio news sources, Rock & Roll and Bible Thumpers, even with its leftish tilt.

    As an aside, I can tell you whether or not your intellectal sarcasm will be totally missed just by asking which NPR station the other person listens to. We have KQED (slightly left in a Washington DC-ish way), KALW (hard-core left in a Boston-ish way) and KPFA (moon-bat central, in a left-of-Berkeley way). The first group (including yours truly) will tend to have an opinion on your statement. The second group will be appalled that you would espouse such a “not what they believe” statement. The third would find you to be morally reprehensible for even conceiving of your “not what they believe” statement.

    But please don’t lump all NPR listeners into the latter two camps.

    Actually, JimDesu, listening to ANY radio show doesn’t make one an intellectual any more than voting for one party or another does….

    and yes, I listen to it, too. My other alternative is Mark Davis, who’s a bit of a gilded ass (not to mention an open schill for gov. Perry).
