Jeffrey Goldberg asks Josh Green the critical questions:

Jeffrey: Why does everyone think you're gay?

Joshua: Gays just wish I were gay. And your readers wish I were gay. It's my chiseled physique. I can't help it.

Jeffrey: Are you now, or have you ever been, Jewish?

Joshua: No, but my love of hummus ought to make me an honorary member of the tribe, don't you think? I've always assumed you're on the membership committee.

Jeffrey: Why do you deny your Jewishness?

Joshua: To withhold satisfaction from the folks who send me all that anti-Semitic hate mail.

Jeffrey: What are you going to do with your life after journalism dies?

Stealth gay and stealth Jew and all abs, Josh Green is the man.
