Jonah Goldberg Is A Hero
Goldberg pegs the funny meter.

About a month ago, I helped a Muslim woman with her groceries in a supermarket parking lot. She was dealing with her kids and her shopping cart started to roll away from her car with the groceries still inside. As it rolled, I saw a decent society of tolerance and kindness rolling away. The cart’s one wobbly wheel — going chapocketa, chapocketa, chapocketa — was onomatopoetically tapping out a small drumbeat for the forced march to oblivion of all we hold dear.

Thank goodness I was there.

Thank goodness this country produces heroes like me.
Stop working right now and read the whole thing or regret it on your deathbed.

LOL! This is the most hilarious thing I've read for a long time!
 
The best line:
"There’s only one thing that eats at me like something that eats at something else." Only he can make not being able to think of a clever comparison this funny.
 
Irina: Glad you liked it. Nice to see you back.
 
It's true though. Everytime I go out of my way to do something nice for someone who doesn't look like me, I find myself focusing on GOING OUT OF MY WAY TO DO SOMETHING NICE. Like it's a big deal for me to hold the door open for the Arab woman at work or the get the ball out of the street for the black kids up the block. I would do it for any Jew (or white person I guess) and not think twice about it. But if I do it for someone else, I'm building some kind of bridge leading to global peace.

It shouldn't have to be like that.
 
Psychotoddler: You're a hero, too!
