A nice story about Seth MacFarlane, the “Family Guy” guy, sharing a nip from a flask with Andrew Breitbart at Bill Maher’s show. Makes me like MacFarlane more, though I can’t really handle all the cheap shots on his show. (Though the Star Wars parodies are very good.) Question: Is the frenzied nature of political debate going to make extinct these kinds of across-enemy-lines gestures and close friendships, like the famous one between ski partners John Kenneth Galbraith and William F. Buckley? It’s kind of hard to picture Paul Krugman and James Taranto going skiing together (though I’m sure Taranto would leap at the chance).
