Who Framed Jesus?

A friend writes about the new Discovery Channel special.

Discovery Channel: Who Framed Jesus?

Logline: New suspects emerge in the death of Jesus.

I’m pretty much speechless. I was unaware the case was open. That said, good luck getting the Procurator of Judæa to prosecute. Guy’s got a serious conflict of interest.

Based on my knowledge of cable tv, I hypothesize the new suspects are:

9. The Real Housewives of Galilee

10. Some shirtless guy on Cops.

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute and is a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, is on sale now.
