Unhinged

November 10, 2006

Over at the National Review, the first winger to succumb to total nervous collapse is — drumroll please — Jonah Goldberg:

How Bush Should Handle Loss [Jonah Goldberg]
I think James Baker and Dick Cheney should take Bush out to the woods around Camp David. After 24 hours in a sweat lodge, he should be given only a loin cloth, a hunting knife and a canteen of water. Bush should then set out to track and kill a black bear, after which he should eat its still beating heart so he can absorb its spirit. He should then fly back to Washington in Marine 1. His torso still scratched from the bear’s claws, his face bloodied and steaming in the November chill, he should immediately give a press conference at which he throws the bearskin on the front row of the press corps, completely enveloping Helen Thomas, declaring, “I’m not going anywhere.”

This will send important messages to Democrats and well as to our enemies overseas, who are no doubt high-fiving as we speak.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. With Bush cultists, the personal is the political is the pathological.

Meanwhile, I wonder what Mrs. Goldberg thinks about the news that her husband fantasizes about Bush in a loincloth.

    Jonah Goldberg went to Goucher College, which is about a half-mile north of where I’m typing this.

    The school is known for its Volvo liberalism and a kind of lesbian chic. If I recall correctly, Goldberg started at Goucher the very year it switched from all-women to co-ed.

    I’m too lazy to do the requisite psychobabbling.

    What is he trying to say? That abusing bears will have some sort of effect on world events? That a grotesque image such as the one he describes would garner respect? That he’s re-enacting The Lost Weekend?

    Thanks for the chuckle!

    Okay, so Goldberg thinks the way to deal with having failed so miserable that the voters abandoned the GOP is for the president to get all macho and abuse Helen Thomas to show how tough he is, because nothing says tough like 60 year old men beating up on 80-something year old women.

    Jeepers! That was one of the stupidest columns I’ve ever read. All that truly awful prose just to say, “Bush should act tough now.”
