I am second to no one in my admiration of Jonah
Goldberg; I will even go so far as to borrow from
Mencken and say (without the irony) that “he compares
favorably with the rising of the sun and the aurora
borealis”. But isn’t all this Kosmo business a bit
much? It appears to me that NR is in danger of falling
prey to the Cult of Personality. Sure, Kosmo SEEMS
like a fine dog, but how do we know we can trust him?
For example, many of his sayings and attitudes strike
me as distinctly feline. And the notion that he writes
some of Jonah’s copy is just plain silly; everybody
knows that he’s ghost-writing Derbyshire.
