Pull My Finger Conservatism


Says Jonah Goldberg:

Gotta love the cover of the NY Post.

I don't think you gotta, necessarily. For a while it surely seemed cool to have popularized a catchphrase that made reflexive bashing of Iraq War doubters a little easier so the glorious liberation could go forward. But doesn't that look less awesome in retrospect?

OK, even if it doesn't, can't we agree that people that respond to even the "Ahhh, fuck it" recommendations of Baker and co. like this are dangerous idiots? (Talking about the Post brain trust now, not Goldberg.)

UPDATE: As usual, Roy Edroso sees the same thing and has a much more entertaining response.
