All I can say, and I will say it over and over and over and over again, is take the time to go read this by HTML Mencken over at Sadly, No!. If you think I'm wordy, this makes me look quite pithy. But read it. Read it again. And share it with friends.
As much fun as it is to laugh at the absurdity of Jonah Goldberg's attempt to equate fascism with contemporary American liberalism, Williams' little piece, with HM's commentary, is a wonderful, and thorough antidote to the pervasive stupid presented as wonderful insight by the likes of Goldberg. If you care at all about serious intellectual, insightful thought over and against the ridiculous nonsense printed in Goldberg's stupid book, you will read this.
