A 10.5 On The Goldberg Scale Of Scumbaggery

Just as countless spermatozoa are wasted in the process of fertilization, Jonah Goldberg spends most of his current piece in the LA Times spewing a multitude of superfluous — yet energetically wriggling — words about Joe Biden’s “gasbaggery,” and how the Senator from Delaware “makes stuff up.”  But just like the bundle of joy which arrives nine months later, more adorable than you could possibly have anticipated, Jonah surprises and delights the reader by delivering a concluding statement of such transcendent imbecility, that it can serve as a coda to both his column and career:
Palin “lost” because she’s bad at being a dishonest politician.
I honestly don’t know how even Jonah could top this.  But on a totally unrelated note, I’ve heard that if you commit suicide immediately after completing your masterpiece, it really boosts the resale value.
