James Wolcott's pithy piece about the National Review OnLine is hilarious - as this sampling from Kiddie Corner shows:
.I fear that my earlier fear has been confirmed. That the introduction of a new primate--John Podhoretz--has upset the delicate ecosystem of the NRO's Corner that has metastasized into the site.
Before everyone knew his role. K'Lo was the drafty Bride of Christ. Andrew Stuttaford was the English correspondent who relayed news from Britain no one cared about. John Derbyshire was the Evelyn Waughish eccentric. Jonah Goldberg was the aging frat-boy fun guy, surfer cable TV with his Star Trek phaser remote control and hyping his upcoming college speaking engagements at Roy Cohn Community College.
But now there are two Jonahs, and although they formed a pact against me this weekend, it won't last. You can't put two alpha males like this in the same steel-cage sewing bee and not expect and body parts to eventually fly .
