    Pretty much how Pope Leo handled Attila. Soft words, some lasagna and a Family Guy rerun. Good stuff, Tod, and props to Mr. Cole.Report

    Meh. I wouldn’t have been anywhere near as trusting to invite them in (I find it a surprise — a good one, but a surprise nonetheless — that the result wasn’t a head injury and his home being ransacked). Also, John Cole blogwise provides more value these days when his commentariat get too O-bot even for him and he Ethers them over it.Report

      I think you’re misreading those situations. I see him ethering firebaggers and manic progressives (some are concern trolls) who are terribly upset that the bully pulpit was not used to achieve their preferred results. Public option, out of Afghanistan immediately, etc. he calls himself an obot.Report

      I go the other way… I’m unlikely to walk into some stranger’s house and start eating lasagna.

      Well, *I’D* probably do it…. but I’m crazy. Most folks wouldn’t. And shouldn’t.Report
