Link of the Day: Dave Neiwert Reviews Jonah’s New Joint

Posted by dumpendebat

Jonah Goldberg’s new joint Liberal Fascism: Words Mean Whatever I Want Them To dropped today, and Dave Neiwert reviews it at The American Prospect.

Goldberg, who has no credentials beyond the right-wing nepotism that has enabled his career as a pundit, has drawn a kind of history in absurdly broad and comically wrongheaded strokes. It is not just history done badly, or mere revisionism. It’s a caricature of reality, like something from a comic-book alternative universe: Bizarro history.

UPDATE, 2008/01/11 17:05 EST

Jonah Goldberg has posted a response to Dave Neiwert’s review. Neiwert has, in turn, posted a preliminary response to Jonah’s response. Keep an eye on Orcinus and NRO if you want to follow their discussion.
