Maybe It's Just Me

But Jonah Goldberg is increasingly starting to bug me. The details are still murky and it’s hard to appreciate how he's never expirienced a life-threatening trauma. And maybe Retardo's right about the Oedipal Complex. And maybe the media’s selectively choosing what to show of his statements. But it would be nice to hear him say something remotely sensible, particularly considering that, while he spends his life in total comfort attempting to justify his self-obsession with ever more inappropriate cultural references, other people directly involved in a war he advocated are getting taken hostage or murdered in cold blood. I’m very glad he’s alive, but I’m getting a very bad vibe. More, no doubt, to come.

Update: And yes There is. (Link via Oliver Willis). Strange silence at the Corner. Will get stranger still. Instead, we get some pathetic grandstanding. If Carroll had reacted in exactly the way Jonah thinks she should have than the translator's death wouldn't even warrant a mention.

However, it's good to know that Goldberg pouts through a mouthful of DingDongs and complains that his First Amendment rights are threatened when someone calls him a rude twit. And here I though it was the left, with its obsession on identity politics, that constantly claims victimhood.
