Quote of the Day

Spencer Ackerman, on Jonah Goldberg's atrocity exhibition:

It's no accident, as the Marxistsfascists used to say, that Goldberg started out by shrugging at how difficult it is to define fascism. What he offers isn't a very serviceable definition, but rather one that can offer about 40 feet of bridge to cross the 50 feet of chasm between liberalism and fascism, in an attempt to get the reader to continue on into a Wile E. Coyote-esque act of intellectual gravity-defiance.
