WOW [Jonah Goldberg]
I just got a galley for David Duke's new book, Human Accomplishment. Very, very cool looking book. I'm kind of scared to start reading it though because it looks like the kind of book you can't stop reading. I think it's going to be a big deal.
OK, that's not exactly what National Review Online editor Jonah Goldberg just posted at NRO's blog. Actually, it is what he just posted, except that I've substituted the name of one racist for the name of another: Charles Murray. (The Murray book Goldberg is raving about, incidentally, will be published in November not by some tiny righty-fringe publisher, but by Rupert Murdoch's HarperCollins.)
So Charles Murray is making a comeback. Charles Murray! Charles "Bell Curve" Murray!
Is it literally impossible now to relegate a right-winger permanently to the margins if that right-winger hasn't killed an abortion doctor, or donned a sheet and burned a cross? Is nothing these people say considered sufficient grounds for banishment from decent society?
