    Tweet of the Day – Jonah Goldberg Edition 

    This is a day for celebration. If Romney’s joke is the most despicable bigotry imaginable then bigotry has been effectively eliminated.

    If only it were that simple.

      I am really concerned about North Korea’s appointment of the “dear leader”, Kim Jung Ill’s youngest son to be the new leader of North Korea– a nuclear power!

      After all, Kim Jung Un (pronounced Kim’s young-un?) had NO military experience whatsoever before daddy made him a four-star general in the military. This is a snot-nose twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership: he hasn’t even so much as led a cub scout troop, coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon. So, setting that aside, next they make him “beloved leader” of the country. Terrific!
      Oh, crap! I’m sorry. Just remembered that we did the same thing here. We took a community organizer who has never worn a uniform & made him Commander-in-Chief; a guy who has never led anything more than an ACORN demonstration & made him leader of this country. Sorry I brought this up, never mind.

      Dear LORD,

      I know that I don’t talk to you that much,
      but you have taken away my favorite actor,
      Patrick Swayze,
      my favorite actress, Farah Fawcett,
      and my favorite singers,
      Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.

      I just wanted to let you know
      that my favorite President is Barack Obama
      and congress folks are Nancy Pelosi and
      Harry Reid.

    Goldberg on Steyn 

    ´╗┐After Mark Steyn there is no second. But if there were, if might be Jonah Goldberg. From the Goldberg Files:

    Yes, that Mark Steyn. Who, you may not know, is actually one of three identical triplets, each of them assigned a different nefarious role in their plot to overthrow the world as we know it. One of them travels through Europe constantly, “coincidentally” hailing cabs that he ends up sharing with potentates, movie stars, and 1950s singers everyone has long assumed were dead. The other writes for nearly every newspaper and magazine in the world, the perfect cover for activating sleeper agents in remote corners of the globe. Need to “turn on” the Steynian assassin in Munich? Just sneak a seemingly innocuous reference to the chorus vocals in the 1979 off-Broadway version of 42nd Street into your Sunday Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung column. Need to notify your asset in the Congo that the CIA is coming for him? Why, just compare Mel Torme’s vocal stylings to the total fertility rate of Manchester, England. As for the last Steyn (soon to be the title of my novel), he spends his entire time expanding his Bond-villainesque headquarters in New Hampshire — and choking mallard ducks, for some reason.

    Sign up for the Goldberg Files here.

    And I don’t believe that last part about the mallards.

      So that explains his ability to be everywhere and writing about everything at once! :-)

      Jonah is wonderful. My husband and he are “work friends” so to speak. He is funny and very scary smart. If you haven’t read Liberal Fascism yet, get to amazon.com now.

      I always thought Jonah should have won a Pulitzer for this portrait of Joe Biden, from 2005:

      “The man loves his voice so much, you’d expect him to be following it around in a grey Buick, in defiance of restraining order, as it walks home from school. He seems to think his teeth are some kind of hypnotic punctuation marks which can momentarily disorient the listener and absolve him from any of Western civilization’s usual imperatives to stop talking. Listening to him speechify is like playing an intellectual game of whack-a-mole where every now and then the fuzzy head of a good point pops up from the tundra but before you can pin it down, he starts talking about how he went to the store and saw a squirrel on the way and it was brown which brings to mind Brown V. Board of Ed which most people don’t understand because [TEETH FLASH] he taught Brown in his law school course and [TEETH FLASH] Mr. Chairman I’m going to get right to it and besides these aren’t the droids you’re looking for….”

      Go to Steyn’s site and try not to read everything in his voice.

      You can’t. Heck, I’m even typing this as Mark Steyn.

      Oh, god I can’t get rid of it now. His site must contain some sort of psychological trojan.

      Hey, why is my avatar a new age swastika?
