Dough, a load, a pantsy load

I had an e-mail exchange with Jonah Goldberg this weekend. He was as civil as I had any right to expect, given that I frequently make unflattering comparisons between him and human waste in a widely read public forum. I am attempting to set up an interview with him; more as it develops.

In completely unrelated news, I have become mildly obsessed with the ads that gMail chooses to show me based on the content of my e-mails. I mention this for no reason that I can fathom.

I regularly delete my spam email when I'm logged into gmail from their web page, so I often get ads for Spam recipes. This technique isn't going to work at all because I'm 35 years old, I've never eaten Spam, and I don't plan on trying it, ever.

It's really not as bad as it seems.

Yeah, people always say that. Secretly, I'm afraid of getting hooked on Spam.

Are you planning for it to be a phone interview?

Or he could get Ole Perfessor to write it for him....

Wait, that should probably be "Ol'" rather than "Ole." At least, I don't think he's Scandinavian....

Then it would consists of a single line, featuring the word "heh".

The fact that his book was late is, indeed, central to his point.

It's whatever he wants it to be. I'm actually hoping to do it in person at CPAC, but his response indicated that an interview with me "ain't a priority" for him.

I too am fascinated by the ads on gmail.

For example, the one alerting me to your LJ comment featuried an ad reading:

Fight Any Traffic Tickets

Former NY Traffic Court Judge. Will vigorously fight your tickets.

Why? What's the significance? I DON'T KNOW!

Could it have been your userpic?

Jonah? Hoo boy. I want to think of questions to suggest... but um, not surprisingly I can't think of anything polite.

good luck! I'd love to read whatever you end up writing about ... er, him.

While I usually, for the sake of my blood pressure and continued existence, run screaming from any article with too many quotes & observations from right-wingers, I'd most definitely make an exception to watch you go one-on-one with Goldberg.
