Commentary Roasts Goldberg

While I am sure that most of you find it incomprehensible that anyone could come up with insults and barbs that could pierce my sterling reputation and good character, we can all agree that it might be fun to try. So my friends at Commentary have selected me as the roastee in their annual Commentary Roast. It’s a grand tradition on the right and many august luminaries will be in attendance and quite a few will be up on the stage, knives drawn. The list of roasters has yet to be finalized, but the nominees are stellar.

This is a fundraiser for the esteemed journal, which is why prices are steep. But if you can swing it, come on by. I promise it will be a good time — for everybody save perhaps those who earn my wrath.
