Abandon logic, all ye who enter here
Jonah Goldberg is a fucking idiot (I might have to make this into a new series). No one ever doubted that there are enough people out there stupid enough to think he’s some sort of scholar. Simply because his book is popular doesn’t make his arguments correct, and the fact that Matt Yglesias‘ book is not as popular does not make Yglesias wrong. Goldberg would do well to read up on his logical fallacies, specifically the argument from popularity.
