Shed a Single Tear

Jonah Goldberg says his much-mocked book Liberal Fascism: The Totalitarian Temptation from Mussolini to Hillary Clinton is being misunderstood: " book isn't like Dinesh's latest book. It isn't like any Ann Coulter book. It isn't what the Amazon description says or what the Economist claims it is. Or what Frank Rich imagines it is," he writes, "It is a very serious, thoughtful, argument that has never been made in such detail or with such care." And I'm sure it is. They probably got a dozen men to hold him down, while another pointed a gun at his head and said "look Goldberg, I know you're doing seriously scholarship here, but you've just got to use that subtitle. We're liberals, after all, not afraid to use a little castor oil to get our way."
