I don’t know what that stands for, but Instapundit seems to own one. Not only is it dumber on the inside than it looks on the outside, but its time-traveling capacities allow him to ask questions in the present that have already been answered in the past.

Dr. Reynolds & Jonah Goldberg travel to a time when their questions were actually relevant, only to be ambushed by the yellow ash-bin of history

Question, asked February 13, 2008.

Why should Obama weigh in? Because he promises an uplifting new kind of politics and this is an ugly old kind. Because Steve Cohen is one of Obama’s supporters, and political loyalty is supposed to run both ways — unless you’re Hillary, anyway, and Obama’s supposed to be the anti-Hillary. Because otherwise Obama’s big appeal — I’m a black candidate who’s not like Al Sharpton! — will be a fraud. And, of course, because it’s the right thing to do.

Answer, answered January 20, 2008.

The scourge of anti-Semitism has, at times, revealed itself in our community. For too long, some of us have seen immigrants as competitors for jobs instead of companions in the fight for opportunity.

Every day, our politics fuels and exploits this kind of division across all races and regions; across gender and party. It is played out on television. It is sensationalized by the media. And last week, it even crept into the campaign for President, with charges and counter-charges that served to obscure the issues instead of illuminating the critical choices we face as a nation.

So let us say that on this day of all days, each of us carries with us the task of changing our hearts and minds. The division, the stereotypes, the scape-goating, the ease with which we blame our plight on others – all of this distracts us from the common challenges we face – war and poverty; injustice and inequality. We can no longer afford to build ourselves up by tearing someone else down. We can no longer afford to traffic in lies or fear or hate. It is the poison that we must purge from our politics; the wall that we must tear down before the hour grows too late.

For his next trick, the Doctor will embrace arbitrary imprisonment, summary execution, and torture, but still strangely reject Che Guevara.
