"I think it is time to be frank about some things," Cole begins. "Jonah Goldberg knows absolutely nothing about Iraq. I wonder if he has even ever read a single book on Iraq, much less written one. He knows no Arabic. He has never lived in an Arab country. He can't read Iraqi newspapers or those of Iraq's neighbors. He knows nothing whatsoever about Shiite Islam, the branch of the religion to which a majority of Iraqis adheres...

"Jonah Goldberg is a fearmonger, a warmonger, and a demagogue. And besides, he was just plain wrong about one of the more important foreign policy issues to face the United States in the past half-century. It is shameful that he dares show his face in public, much less continuing to pontificate about his profound knowledge of just what Iraq is like and what needs to be done about Iraq and the significance of events in Iraq."

One of the right's most common, and best, arguments for the Trump presidency is that it shattered the Republican Party's calcified agenda.

One of the best things about the passage of historical time is how the partisanship of a given moment melts away.

While I am an admirer of Jonah Goldberg's columns in general, I was shocked by one sentence in his column "Iggy the Crusader victimized by misguided crusade" (March 26, 2018). The column was about how political correctness nowadays was affecting the use of the word "Crusader" referring to ...
A liberal, the old joke attributed to Robert Frost goes, is someone too broad-minded to take his own side in a quarrel. Something similar is going on with Catholics. Just ask Iggy the Crusader, who for years served nobly as the mascot of the College of the Holy Cross. Holy Cross is throwing Iggy under the ...

That's Latin for "Life is a job." I didn't learn that in school or even from a book. I learned that from Father Guido Sarducci. For younger readers, that name may draw a blank.

One of the more annoying things about politics is that you can swing from left to right, or vice versa, without ever changing positions.
