Bob Wright and Jack McCullough--ego trip edition

Okay, I know this is blowing my own horn, but I can't help it.

I've mentioned before that I'm a regular viewer of bloggingheads.tv, a site that posts diavlogs, generally setting up disagreements between the two interlocutors.

Today I get Bob Wright and Mickey Kaus not only to mention one of my comments, but to both agree with it.

Way to go, brother! But which item were they commenting on? I don't recall the original post.

It's a nice feeling to be name-checked, isn't it? Congratulations!

And I liked your comment, too, even if I didn't completely agree with it. My one-word characterization of McCain's state of mind wouldn't have been "bullying." It would have been either "irritated" or "seething," depending on how charitable I felt.

Oh, and far be it from me to think there's anything wrong with a little SSP (Shameless Self-Promotion).

But I have to say, getting that bonehead Kaus to agree with you is not such a great thing. I read him from time to time, but it seems he likes to say things just to be contrarian, so if I find myself agreeing with him, I have to start reexamining what I really think. Wright is another story, because I think he's really an intelligent guy.

Bob pretty much read my entire comment, so if you click on the link you'll get to hear Bob and Mickey talking about me.

It's a funny thing. Mickey claims to be a Democrat, but I don't think I've ever heard of him supporting a Democratic candidate. Bob's already needling him about whether he's really going to support McCain, but I think it's pretty clear that he won't. On the other hand, I think Bob's personality is more prickly than Mickey's, so I think I might like Mickey better.
