We Like Beer

You may have heard that there is a Supreme Court in the midst of getting confirmed for the bench. The men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) have a few thoughts about the dignified and measured process the country is engaged in. Tune in, won’t you?

Also, attention Southern California GLoP listeners: We have 2 pairs of tickets to give away to see Jonah Goldberg speak on Sunday October 7th at 7:30PM Campell Hall on the campus of UC Santa Barbara. Winners will get to meet him and get your copy of Suicide of The West signed (sorry, you have to supply your own copy of the book). The first people to PM @BlueYeti get them. See you there!

    I like how John Podhoretz is looking at the rest of you disapprovingly in the picture above.

    @roblong , as a teen and for decades after, I’ve heard “boofing” as a synonym for farting. There is more to the world than the Urban Dictionary.

    John’s head is too large in relationship to his body.

    Nope. I use the existing heads as a guide. The main trouble is that stock photography tends to use a lot of really young and really skinny people… skinnier than our intrepid trio of middle aged heroes.

    Boofing != Boffing.

    I’ve never heard the term boofing ever. Nor do I know what in the world John was referring to with “squee” at the end.

    I wonder who is squarer — and also who like to talk more — me or John Podhoretz? Could be quite the competition.

    Considering the current moral panic, it makes me a little uneasy that we can’t see what they’re doing with their other hands.

    I think this is the 14th consecutive podcast where Rob Long has mentioned he went to Yale.

    Thanks for mentioning William Kennedy Smith again. 

    Back when SNL was funny, they did a bit called “MTV Hyanisport Spring Break Weekend”.

    It’s on YouTube. Worth the watch again.

    The only “Squeee!” I remember is from the old Magnus: Robot Fighter comics, it was the sound made by the robots when Magnus karate-chopped their heads off.

    Squee is the name of one of Kavanaugh’s friends who attended the party on the July 1 date that a lot of Democrats are fixating on as a possible date for the party at which he allegedly attacked Ford. But his presence on the list works against that theory, because Ford didn’t list him as being present at the party, and she was dating him at the time so if he were there you’d think she’d remember that.

    To me, any day in which he wrote “party at …” is highly suggestive that he was at the party and did not attack her. He would certainly be smart enough to know not to make trouble for himself this way if he had attempted a rape at a party and thought he could be accused of doing so.

    I would have assumed that he’d write the party into the calendar before it happened, not afterward. Or do you mean that he would have erased it?

    Yeah. But he may have been writing things after doing them too, since he was saving them.

    He mentioned Martini Shot then he named the new one. @kylez is correct. It’s brand-spanking new.

    It is indeed The Ankler and it is here. We soft launched it this week and will do a bigger promotion after we have a couple more shows under our belts.

    Adding a data point for “boofing”: A friend in college–not Yale, but with a lot of refugee faculty from the Yale English department working on their suntans and their important mission of making life miserable for students–used the word “boofy” for flatulence. I always assumed that it was a cute word his parents used when he was a tyke–unlike mine, who were not big on euphemisms (“if there’s an Anglo-Saxon word for it, use it, you dumb little eff-er,” I can still hear Mom saying). Never heard it as a verb, but then I never heard “swan” as verb anywhere but Ricochet until recently (in a documentary in the supplementals for the Criterion The Philadelphia Story DVD). Finally–to dam up this stream of consciousness–there was an early 70s underground comic on Superman in which he is presented as a Yale grad, that college chosen because of his wound-tight, hairbrush up the butt personality. I’ve exceeded my “instant gratification” limit on Google (27 seconds). Anyone know the comic’s title or author? Mr. Podhoretz? Mr. Goldberg? Mr. Long?
