everything that keeps us together is falling part
They sang protest songs to try to stop the soldier...
ooh baby it's a wild world
I'm not here, this isn't happening
Now it's raining hard as ever
i spent the rent
We don't incredible-hulk no more, we don't do none...
every bent knee too shall break
yesterday i woke up sucking on a lemon

Something must break now:
For the life of me, I can't get Alex Koppelman's Salon Q&A with Jonah Goldberg to load. It's a shame, because I hear Jonah refutes all of his critics with scintillating brilliance and we all look totally stupid now. However, a colleague e-mailed me a graf in which Jonah engages my criticisms head-on:
How do you feel about the reaction to your book so far, especially from the liberal blogosphere?
Whoa, seriously? I'm "childish" and a "weirdo," but the trouble with the Kossacks is that they call Jonah names? Did I read that right? Instant replay!
Who's that weirdo, the guy with the "Too Hot for TNR" blog? Spencer Ackerman. That's absurd, and it's childish. Type my name into Daily Kos. As hilarious as some people might think it is to call me a "Doughy Pantload," at some point if that is the crux of your objection to a 500-page book that Tom Wolfe says is the best and most important revisionist history in a very long time, that says a lot more about those people than it does about me.Huh. At least Jonah's consistent. He practices the same kind of illogic found in his book in his everyday argumentation. This Goldberg guy may not actually be as smart as he tells us he is.
