A man of the relative left

My latest diavlog is up, with Byron York of the National Review. Among the topics discussed:

1) The latest Gallup poll about the 2008 race and what it means (a segment during which I become a human graphic);

2) Why I deserve tenure;

3) The latest turning-of-the-corner in Iraq;

4) Why Republicans don't seem tolike YouTube all that much.

Go check it out. I still like the idea I proposed in the first minute of the exchange, which is to shoot a film noir version of bloggingheads. But only if Megan McArdle plays the gun moll.

What might that look like?

Black & white, smoke-filled rooms, a woman in a detective agency?

The Dark Corner (B&W, 94 Min) -- 1947, Dan Drezner, Byron York, Poster of Salma Hayek -- Rated TV-PG for Mild Obsessive Behavior, Cigarette Smoking, Odd Sartorial Choices)

Tepid drama where a couple guys talk about politics in a darkened room with ventian blinds and a distracting blinking neon light. If the hotel room is so crummy, how come they have wi fi? "My Dinner with Andre" without the food. D-.

Best Line:

"I liked the way she crossed her legs...just a little right of center."

I'm not from the generation that produced the most film noir (like you are), but I don't think film noir movies have the level of giggling that would happen in a conversation between you and Megan McCardle.

The human graphic is great. Well done, Dan. I believe you may have discovered the area of your comparative advantage and can now trade for other items.
