Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

My whereabouts

I’m in the D.C. metro area, where I spent an exceptionally pleasant evening drinking with Jonah Goldberg and dining with Patrick Deneen, this after spending the day participating in a program hosted by these genial folks.

My kids are swimming tonight; I hope they did as well tonight as they did last week (8 races; 8 wins).

Jonah Goldberg? Now there's a fine example of someone rising to the top in the most meritocratic fashion! You wouldn't even know the guy's name if it weren't for his mom, Lucianne, being involved in the whole Lewinsky-Tripp hoo-haw. Did he share some of his boundless wisdom on the Iraq situation? It's not like he's been thoroughly discredited on that one. Yet he still had the nerve to claim that he had a better grasp of the situation there than Juan Cole, of all people! Did you explain the basics of the Austro-Hungarian empire to him? Amazingly, after having lived in Prague, he didn't have a clue about it. Yeah, if I were going to be around that arrogant gasbag I'd need to drink, too!
