I Get (Blogging) Head from Ezra

April 15th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Well, the primary function of this for me was to confirm that I’ve almost entirely lost the debate chops I spend four years building up at NYU, but you can check out Ezra Klein & me on a new episode of BloggingHeads TV discussing American individualism, cost-sharing in healthcare, TSA watchlists, trade & IP, and campaign finance in this year of record-breaking primary fundraising.

Addendum: Since they’ve titled this the “baby-faced wonk consensus,” I should probably note that I am, in fact, 28.

    You don’t look a day over 19, Mr. Sanchez. Must get to be a pain, getting carded at bars n’ such 😉

    A very good discussion with Ezra Klein. I’m thankful you guys didn’t speak for but a moment about l’Affair Althouse and did in fact focus on interesting issues of the day. Hopefully future Bloggingheads guests will follow your good example.

    A very good point you made about the Do-Not-Fly List and the lack of information about how names are added/removed. A ticket agent wouldn’t likely have access to the justification behind an addition of a particular name. Does this mean the professor’s story is a fake? I suspect the ticket agent was speculating, or was a DHS official, or else the professor volunteered the fact he was publicly critical of the Bush Administration. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely any of these questions will come to light until 2009.

    I really enjoy your blog, sir. Wish me luck to survive this storm we’re riding out in Boston and New York tonight.

    You debate about the same. Too little rhetoric too much acedemic pap.

    Don’t you love it when your critics can’t spell worth a damn?

    Well, he probably has a point–even then my style was a more verbose and didactic than the norm. But by the end, I would at least occasionally break out of that in my best rounds.
