If you’re a fan of Jonah Goldberg, you are aware of his fondness for zombies. If you aren’t, read this and be vastly entertained. For what it’s worth, I quite agree with him about the lack of creativity shown in task-specific weaponry.
Jonah Goldberg offers some sound advice for Republicans. Are any of them smart enough to follow it? We shall see if they understand that actions speak far louder than words.
Like Jonah, I found the speech uninspiring as a call to action. As noted, His Oneness has evolved a tiny bit, to where ISIS might have some religious component, and the U.S. might upon occasion be somewhat exceptional, except when it isn’t. He took his now-obligatory shot at Israel. The Ace of Spades has a long, but very worthwhile post on the speech.
I’m afraid my only thought when I saw a shot of him speaking at the U.N. was that he was comfortable in that cesspool of corruption and incompetence. That is the sort of place he belongs in.
UPDATE: Joseph Curl was much less kind.
Jonah Goldberg offers us a boffo post advising us on how to translate what His Oneness says. Basically, we should reverse his words in order to obtain their true meaning. It’s good advice, and saves us the trouble3 of waiting for his actions to be the opposite of his words.
The title comes from Jonah Goldberg’s new G-File, which National Review has posted online at the Corner. In it he raises some important points for conservative thinkers to ponder, and not just in the realm of economics.
Jonah Goldberg is writing about Oliver Stone’s new book “The Untold History of the United States”, co-authored with Peter Kuznick, but he is absolutely correct that the left-wingers are boring. They have had nothing really new to say in decades, even though they pretend their regurgitation of the same old garbage is new and exciting. The old hats Jonah mentions can be found in a syllabus on many college campuses in the nation.
The left has long enjoyed an intellectual and moral status it has done nothing to deserve. I am reminded of this every time I see some youth wearing a T-shirt featuring Che Guevara’s likeness. Having been taught little real history by the public education system, they believe the Cuban murderer was a rebel, a freedom fighter. Use your iPad to pull up these 10 quotes from Che which the left never mentions, and you will have begun the rehabilitation of one mind. I like them because they got me thrown out of a history course many moons ago, because the professor couldn’t deal with the truth about his hero.
