Jonah Goldberg's Hard Climb to the Top

he makes simpsons references!Could National Review Online's hunky "editor-at-large" (and we do mean large) Jonah Goldberg be any more hot, more now? He's profiled in The Hill this week, and, like, wow: He is this town's Paris Hilton, Chloe Sevigny, Peter Jackson and Vincent Gallo all rolled into one. According to The Hill, he has "a penchant for referring to pop culture as easily as to Hayek or Keynes." So cute. He also -- and where have we heard this before? -- takes "the oxymoron out of hip conservative." Neat! How does he do it? It's not easy to be so cutting-fucking-edge, is it? He says it all comes down to pushing the envelope: "I’m willing to make jokes about ‘The Simpsons.'" And we thought William F. Buckley was going out on a limb when he made all those "Cathy" references.


Goldberg's humble, too. You may not know this, but his mother, Lucianne, gained just a smidgen of notoriety during the Clinton administration. Something about an intern? Well, Jonah helped his mom out a bit when her schedule got jammed -- you know, answering phones, going out for pizza, appearing in her stead on Fox -- and one thing led to another and before he knew it, he was the editor of the National Review Online! A real Horatio Alger story, and Jonah shyly admits as much: "Ultimately, the whole [Lewinsky] thing helped me, but if you were a betting person in 1998 you’d have said it would have destroyed my career. It took a lot of hard work on my part to make that not happen.”

Hard work and "The Simpsons" references!

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
