Please, Help Keep Jonah in Pants

So, The Donald, not content with his first angry jab at Jonah, this week once again attacked our intrepid commentator-colleague during an interview with NBC’s Katy Tur. Here’s the clip (the castigating begins at 11:00):

The fact is: In addition to writing best-selling books, giving speeches, and walking his dog, Jonah Goldberg can buy pants. And wear them too. At least we think so.

So we think Donald Trump is wrong, but can’t be entirely sure. That’s why we hope NR readers will turn The Donald’s unique “you-can’t-buy-pants-Goldberg” insult into an opportunity for Jonah’s many fans to express some small-but-symbolic financial solidarity with NR.

And to help keep Jonah in pants.

Our goal: to raise $5,000 by Sunday at midnight.

Our hope: 200 readers, each donating $25, which is but a penny more than what Sears is charging for a pair of Covington Men’s Extender Flat-front Twill Pants. Admittedly, they’re not the kind of slacks you’d find on . . . what did Jonah call him? . . . oh yeah, “Lonesome Rhodes in a $10,000 suit.” But they’re good enough for most of us who have yet to make our first billion. 

Of course, your generous donation will help NRO continue to beat the pants off liberals, to catch progressives with their pants down, and to report on lying liberals whose pants (or pantsuits) are on fire.

So put on your big boy pants and stand by Jonah: Dig into your pants, pull out the wallet, grab the credit card, visit the NR Donation Page, and make a donation.

Many thanks.

Is America Becoming Sinicized?

A little over 40 years ago, Chinese Communist strongman and reformer Deng Xiaoping began 15 years of sweeping economic reforms. They were designed to end the disastrous, even murderous planned economy of Mao Zedong, who died in 1976. The results of Deng’s revolution astonished the world. In four decades, ... Read More

Elizabeth Warren Is Not Honest

If you want to run for office, political consultants will hammer away at one point: Tell stories. People respond to stories. We’ve been a story-telling species since our fur-clad ancestors gathered around campfires. Don’t cite statistics. No one can remember statistics. Make it human. Make it relatable. ... Read More

O’Rourke’s America

With apologies to Margaret Atwood and a thousand other dystopian novelists, we do not have to theorize about what an American police state would look like, because we know what it looks like: the airport, that familiar totalitarian environment where Americans are disarmed, stripped of their privacy, divested of ...
