Daniel Drezner Sells Out (and Good for Him):

Starting January 5, Daniel Drezner's blog will move to its new home at Despite his new sponsorship, he promises to maintain his editorial independence, even if it means whacking Jennifer Palmieri with a two-by-four.

even if it means whacking Jennifer Palmieri with a two-by-four. ?????

Sexist - not funny -- lose the gender violence so called humor. Gender violence humor is to women what lynching is to blacks or ovens are to Jews.

Sorry to be hyper but our friends have to stop it or there is no hope. I have linked to you for over 2 years. If you think I am just a snot, ask Phyllis Chesler. Or check out how many women and/or children are killed every day by their male friends and acquaintances. With 2x4s, with hammers, with fists ..... With the latest grope rape photo from Obama's speech writer we have had enough of this insensitivity from those who should know better.

Green, I bet you find being an idiot interferes with your day to day life.

Out of curiosity, was your comment directed at the author of the first post, the author of the second post, or both?

Okay people, now that Greenconsciousness is here to lay down the law, one must never refer to anything bad happening to women and minorities, because everyone knows they are the hardest hit.

And don't mention old people dying, since it happens to them extra.

In fact, we really should stop writing things, since words were used by Hitler for antisemitic ends.

By the way, I assume that this is the photograph to which "Greenconsciousness" refers, which makes his (?) post even more hysterical. ("Grope rape"? Of a piece of cardboard?)

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
