It’s Jonah Goldberg versus Barbra Streissand – ’nuff said.
(Hat tip to co-blogger Will Collier, who can’t seem to log on this morning.)
I think Stacy banned me for all the post AU-uat game gloating.
The Goldberg column reminded me of something P.J. O’Rourke said a while back, about a review he’d done on one of Hillary’s ghost-written tomes: “I did the meanest thing I could think of. I quoted her.”
The scarriest thing I took away from Streisand’s letter was that she gets her news from the editorial page.
I guess It’s easier to listen to the parrot ask for a cracker than to investigate why it’s hungry.
Happy Hannukah. in 2 and a half weeks!
And what is worse, he’ll be laughing as he carves her up.
Will, your quote of PJ referring to Hillary reminds me of one of my favorites–roughly, that she “possesses a highly developed, finely attuned stupidity normally found only in the upper reaches of academia.”
That was just cruel.
Steve I’m so glad you posted this one. I just finished reading it a few minutes ago.
Goldberg vs. Streisand is like Lennox Lewis vs. a 7 year old cancer patient.
Still, I sure do enjoy watching Goldberg put the intellectual wood to Babs.
…and here I was thinking that the “principals of journalistic integrity” was a coy reference to the editorial boards of the NY Times and WaPo.
I cancelled my subscription to the Morrow County Sentinel when they replaced “Jumble” with “Ask Aunt Judy”.
It was blatant depuzzlefication and I was not going to be silent on the matter. I gots rights and I’ll use ‘em.
Well, now that I know this stuff is going on, I’ll be watching vigilantly against the further dilution of any gamuts… bwah!
Goldberg rocks. Your title pulled the single best line, though.
The article was magnificent, it shows us poor (in ‘speechifying’) how to put a pretender (of knowledge) in their place! To do it so quickly and cleanly you can’t even see the scars left from the blade work. I stand in awe. And the following comments were just a good…maybe better only due to brevity of said comments.
Barbra steisand isnt on crack she is CRACKED
