Jonah, Derb: I wanted to avoid the appearance of impropriety by celebrating NR’s role — and specifically Jonah’s role — in promoting the term cheese-eating surrender monkeys. Was worried it would appear as NR backscratching. Maybe I shouldn’t have been so reluctant. The new issue of NRODT has a great review of Our Oldest Enemy: A History of America’s Disastrous Relationship with France. Talk about backscratching! Will you be appeased (so to speak) if I promise to call the sequel Still Our Oldest Enemy: A History of America’s Disastrous Relationship with the Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys?
