I’m not the biggest Jonah Goldberg fan in the world, but how can you not like his introduction to his BHTV segment with Ross Douthat:
I, a bleary-eyed not quite elder-statesman (mid-level staffer?) of the rightwing interwebs, disoriented from long nights on the road, cold medication and excessive spirits the night before. He, a clear-eyed young Turk, brimming with excitement and fresh ideas. Together, you get the sort of entertainment unheard of outside C-Span III at four in the morning. It’s like Marlo v. Barksdale, Obama v. McCain, a new weird Green Lantern character versus an old weird Green Lantern character.
I think if Barack Obama really wants to bring the country together, he needs to incorporate as many Wire references as possible into his inaugural address. It’s a new day for the United States of America!
