Thus Spake The Pantload

Jonah Goldberg, author of “Liberal Fascism,” has some “helpful” advice to offer his favorite political punching bags, who all are admittedly much smarter and more qualified than he is, to do things the way he imagines people like that do things, since he clearly doesn’t know any better.  A classic piece of duplicitous, lazy concern-trolling, [...]
