A Very Serious, Thoughtful, Etc.

My old boss Mike Tomasky has an excellent review of Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism that does a good job of getting to the book's main salient qualities -- it's tediousness, it's habit of announcing widely-known facts as if they were shocking discoveries, and Goldberg's failure to argue from any identifiably coherent perspective ("Why isn't he an anarchist? And when you get to this point, what isn't fascist?"), etc.
