Jonah Goldberg Owes Us Money
The lovably ignorant right-wing pundit who's memorized every Simpsons episode but probably couldn't tell you the difference between Persians and Arabs made a little bet two years ago:
Let's make a bet. I predict that Iraq won't have a civil war, that it will have a viable constitution, and that a majority of Iraqis and Americans will, in two years time, agree that the war was worth it. I'll bet $1,000 (which I can hardly spare right now).
He made the bet to historian Juan Cole, who refused to accept it -- but we don't let things like "common decency" or "shock at that degree of ghoulishness" get in the way of our love of gambling.
So we'll happily accept Jonah Goldberg's filthy money. And he should raise his head in pride as he hands it over -- he's just created one more blessed war profiteer!
