Lacking Self-Awareness

Jonah Goldberg caught the vapors over some of Wanda Sykes’ routine at the White House Correspondents Dinner (aka “nerdprom”) last evening. Let it be said that I’m not really a fan of her oeuvre. However, I wonder how Goldberg can write something like this with a straight face:

Recently, the worst thing in the world you could do was “question” someone’s patriotism. But calling Limbaugh a traitor and a terrorist and hoping he dies is hilarious?

Really? I’ve never heard of people questioning Obama’s patriotism before. Especially not at National Review.

Try harder, Jonah. Please.

One last thing. Though I have no love for Rush, I don’t wish him ill. I just wish he’d realize that he says awful stuff and then has the audacity to act like he’s speaking truth to power when all he’s doing is spewing ignorance then hiding, accountability free, behind the mask of an entertainer.
