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.

How Seinfeld Mastered the Comedy Domain

I can’t say whether Larry Charles, Larry David, Alec Berg, Spike Feresten, and the rest of the brilliant writers of Seinfeld were students of F. Scott Fitzgerald, but they might as well have been. Fitzgerald supplied the best advice for sitcom writers: Start with an individual, and before you know it you find ... Read More
