At the outset, let me declare a personal interest: Jonah Goldberg destroyed my career. Let me explain: When I was a young writer starting out, I fancied myself as something of a conservative humorist. My jeremiads about the Clinton impeachment and high marginal tax rates were interspersed with anecdotes about beer and chicken-wing consumption. My shtick was laughing it up with the Laffer Curve.
Sarah Palin identified the emerging "conservative feminist."
"If this were a very special episode of a 1980s TV show, we could resolve all of this with a simple break-dancing competition. But as that is not a viable option at this juncture; neither is any other emotionally or intellectually satisfying settlement to this argument," he adds.
Jonah Goldberg argues that Mr. Cruz's efforts were futile, nothing more than dramatic political theater.
