Jonah's full of bologna

I recently saw a C-Span Book thing that featured Jonah Goldberg talking to a Heritage Foundation audience about his new book, Liberal Fascism-with lol cats-no, just kidding! (about the lol cats at least-I got that from Jon Swift's Jonah Goldberg's Shining (Liberal Fascism with LOLcats) excellent satire of Jonah's book)

I watched as Jonah went through all sorts of weird, fuzzy, and unconvincing (at least to me) arguments to try and paint American liberalism and progressives, from the most middle of the road Demo to the more activist left with the broad brush of fascism. At times, his winding and weaving of the connections of early American populist leaders to fascists and fascist-like practices seemed to rival a 7 degrees of Kevin Bacon discussion! Jonah, you make parody much too easy!

That reminds me... I am going to have to give that comic engine a fuller run through as well. Thanks for the heads up about that months ago. :)

I knew someone that knew that dude.

Said he's a real, Class-A douche bag.
