The funniest thing about According to Jim is that network executives think it's worth broadcasting. Talk about satire on reality...

Yglesias really needs some real-world experience. Maybe a job which doesn't involve nothing but expressing every damn thing he thinks.

That's odd: I'd always thought a little less testosterone in the political arena would be a good thing.

Having accepted (because it seems right, but I could be wrong) that men and women in the United States (and probably other places, but my experience is somewhat limited on that front) are socialized differently, I'd always thought that the world would be a better place if women primarily ran things.

I don't intend my comment to be an endorsement of sexism. I'm only saying that in my experience, men and women are socialized differently. And perhaps I'm adding that that causes me to believe that the political system would be less injurious if women predominated. (Although, of course, if "testosterone-poisoned" women went into politics and the "women who are socialized differently than men" did not, I suppose that hypothesis would not hold.)

Of course, ideally, we would just find a way for men to overcome their testosterone poisoning.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
