And don’t forget to pick up a copy of The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas either on Amazon or on Audible (Jonah reads it!).

    E.J.:  Jonah looks like a refugee from a 1960s commune.  Not blaming you–you have to work with the materials at hand.

    Is anyone else getting taken to podcast #116, not #117, via the link?

    Yes, Jeff.  I’m in the same boat.  Blue Yeti, do something!

    Just to ensure that no one thinks that all Brits are contenders for Monty Python’s Upperclass Twit of the Year contest, I’d like to see Piers Morgan have a go at Mark Steyn. · 10 hours ago

    One suspects that Steyn would be somehow… less generous than Jonah in similar circumstances.

    Rob’s comments about Vince Vaughn make me very hopeful. I think he’s terrific and an exemplar of the rule that funny men make the best dramatic actors. His performance in Return to Paradise was just incredible. Couldn’t believe he didn’t win an Oscar for it (wasn’t even nominated, I don’t think). Terrific podcast!

    I think I’ve listened to all 117.  That one was definitely in the Top 5.  Funny conservatives.

    I had pre-ordered Jonah’s book back when he mentioned it in his G-File newsletter.  Received it this week and only had a little bit of time to read it so far.  I noticed the audible.com version of the book is only $7.32.  Quite the bargain to have a version with Jonah reading it.  Now I can listen in the car as well.

    Love this podcast, and Jonah’s books, articles etc. But the “giggle” is, sorry guys, bad radio. I wince when I hear it. Is this just me?

    I agree as to the final song choice.  I only wish I hadn’t seen the credit and knew what to expect before I listened.

    Great podcast, I wish Jonah was back for good. Did it seem to anyone else that Rob was holding back while Jonah went on a short rant about social issues benefiting the Republican party? Maybe Coulter softened him up a little on their debate. The interaction about Elizabeth Warren made me laugh so much that it inspired me to compose her “racial dna pie chart” – I hope Lileks doesn’t consider this plagiarism: http://bit.ly/JAwYeg .

    I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but those are some pretty shaky looking Indians.  The firewater must have been flowing pretty free and loose…

    It’s so funny that you guys talked about Jonah’s laugh because I was telling my friend about this upcoming podcast and I was telling her that Jonah has an unforgettable laugh. Love it! Keep up the good work!
