I thought the politics of the Kavanaugh nomination were already bad for Republicans but it looks like they are rapidly getting worse

that’s fair! i think he played the role well but he is definitely too associated with action

Having said that I think Chris Pine was pretty decent in JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT and would love to see him do an older take on the character

Columnists often project their own interests and views onto voters. But this, from Andrew Sullivan, is so wildly detached from the lived reality of anyone involved in or reporting on, or in many cases voting in, the 2018 election.

these movies should be thrillers with an element of “fish out of water,” not protagonist driven action flicks

Jack Ryan isn’t some commando or martial artist. He isn’t a covert agent. He’s an academic and an analyst, and his strength is his resourcefulness and courage. The drama in the good Jack Ryan movies comes when his resourcefulness is stressed and courage tested.

watching HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER for the 10th time or after trying to watch that new Jack Ryan series and being annoyed that it, like the last two Jack Ryan movies, does not get why that character, as portrayed by Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin, works.

When you care so much about free speech you try to get a professor fired for making a joke about the president having a big butt

we may have a fundamental disagreement here, because i just don’t think that such things are tenable, especially since many people aren’t making “informed decisions” as commonly understood

If we want people to vote, I think it is better to inculcate the habit when they have some adult responsibilities but are also still “captive,” versus 18 where voting is also competing with major life changes that complicate the ability to obtain a ballot

And you have a relatively captive audience to get most of them to register in high school. We could do this on the local level and really change Cleveland politics for the better.

that is good but it is also separate from the question of lowering the voting age
