It can be all these things, and more!

But look at it through the eyes of a conservative. This is a Democratic city, run almost uniformly by liberals. While many of the problems most prominently on display can certainly be traced back to racism, racism itself is not a central issue in the Wire (nor is racism an inherently or historically conservative phenomena). These drug gangs and the poor souls in their orbit, are not trapped by racism so much as by a dysfunctional culture.

Hilarious afterthought.

Airplanes can be used for good things and bad things. Some airplanes carry medicine or ice cream, but other airplanes carry bombs or bad people. But an airplane with bombs might be good because the bombs are for using on bad guys, and on the other airplane maybe the ice cream has melted.

Loved it. Looking forward to Goldberg's response: "I have no time to answer this – my daughter's getting her rabies shot."

Dear Jonah,

Even Hamilton would not have found this fellow to be duel worthy.

Those quotes from the book are amazing.

Well, you were close:

I’m not going to bother with most of this garbage since I have actual work to do

Genuine lol. I loved Alex's airplane analogy, too. So sad about the melted ice cream. It's not fair.

authors shouldn't respond to negative reviews IMO, it's undignified. in his post jonah proceeds to commit every sin he accuses klein of. i can't imagine reading an entire book by this assclown but that post illustrates his unique fusion of pseudo-erudition and juvenile putdowns. klein was too kind!

I suspect Jonah took Alex P's comment about him never addressing criticism to heart -- and this is the result.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 20 May 2012 13:12 (1 year ago) Permalink

as Pareene has noted, Jonah craves the affection of guys like Klein (who's a hack himself).

"We've invited Klein, Goldberg, Chris Matthews, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly to this debate inside a vacuum-sealed tube we've dropped in the middle of the ocean. Now, an hour of gentle new age music."

otm

i don't think much of klein either. people like his book on woody guthrie but on politics he's always been a conventional-wisdom pez dispenser

I can’t imagine a person dumb enough to actually believe that Jonah Goldberg had been seriously considered for a Pulitzer. (Well, OK, I can imagine one person dumb enough.)

A+ Klo zing.

I align myself with GK Chesterton, William F. Buckley, Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, Friedrich von Hayek, Ludwig Von Mises and quite a few others on this point.

jberg is good evidence that all the advantages of an upper class, urban, educated, political upbringing cannot substitute for intelligence. he just seems really dumb idk.

pareene piece an excellent takedown to read sunday morning. my only complaint is that having already attacked goldberg it's unlikely pareene will follow-up with more goldberg pieces throughout the rest of the year.

Don't worry -- Jonah will provide more fodder!

In short, I’m really not all that bothered by what I think are his unjustifiably low opinions of my work, but I really can’t abide his unjustifiably high opinion of himself.

riiiiiiiiiiiiiight
