    I would have given good money if, when Jack was asked “how are the animals?” he answered, “They were delicious.”

    The 3 million (or more) illegal voters for Hillary, didn’t need to be brought in. They’re already here!

    Yes, that was Jonah’s best segue ever.

    But it’s not a high bar.

    The evidence – the evidence of history, that is – shows that it’s the Left that is wrong about race. Evidence such as the increase of black single-motherhood going from 20% to over 70%, under decades of the tender ministrations of Democrat mayors, city councils, congressmen and senators, and more directly-involved race hustlers such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

    Grassy knoll? Grass hole? The audio is hard to decipher.

    If you are a defender of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, would you also be a defender of the Holy Roman Empire (at least under the Hapsburgs)?

    Wait, What? The constituent nations of the Austro-Hungarian Empire were not who were part of the Nazis. We fought the Germans, and the Austrians, and after WW1 Austria was still a country and it wasn’t until after Hitler was established that Austria fell into the Nazi fold. I’m not an expert here, but the Austrians did not elect the Nazis in 1932 and didn’t even vote then.

    Anyway, I don’t know this history real way, but I think you falsely accused the constituent parts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as embracing the Nazis in Democratic fashion.

    I am at least vaguely aware of this; I was trying to argue, in a clumsy way, that a still intact (highly multiethnic!) Austro-Hungarian Empire would have had difficulty consenting to the Anschluss.

    Perhaps it’s time for @jameslileks to surrender his King of The Segue crown to @jonahgoldberg. The whole Corleone family/nepotism/meritocracy thing leading into an ad for ZipRecruiter … I actually whistled in surprise and admiration. Let’s have more of this first class segueing, please. It’s why we’re here, after all.

    Not me. And while Jonah may have done a good job ONCE – not a high bar, as I mentioned before – Lileks has been doing it consistently for years.

    An amusing bit of trivia I heard recently from former Israeli MK, former head of the IDF Medical Corps, and Professor of Plastic Surgery, Arye Eldad: “The Jews loved [Austro-Hungarian] Emperor Franz Josef. They used to refer to him as “Froyim Yoysef’.”

    I personally find the segues kind of annoying. I prefer the WSEU podcast method. They’re talking about one topic, then somebody tells “transition” and they start a new topic.

    I was a page for the Iowa General Assembly back in the days when they were voting to raise the drinking age from 18 to 19. The State Capitol is a beautiful building. I hope you got to go inside as well as look at the statues on the grounds.

    “I personally find the segues kind of annoying” = “Bah, humbug!”

    What was that great ending music? It sounded like something out of the classic ’90s videogame FFIII/FFVI, but I’m sure it wasn’t.
