Jonah Goldberg spoke at the University of Wisconsin-Madison last night. No I didn’t go. Evidently he was brought in to talk on Hurricane Katrina. I was going to take time to report and refute what he had to say but time is too precious for such an uninteresting endeavor. Anyway some local conservative bloggers who love the Jonah did liveblog the event and they were more “interesting”…….
From Bob Thelan at Freedom Fighters (FF)…..
Goldberg: “I was brought here to talk about Katrina.? I didn’t think it was that interesting of an idea.”
Goldberg: “Some say that Native Americans were great environmentalists don’t know history. Some think that Indians were like a Disney movie, with Indians talking to bunnies. The great plains used to be a giant forest. The Indians burnt it to the ground to hunt buffalo.
FF: Interesting. I am not entirely sure about the latter comment.
LIB: It’s five after seven, and the room isn’t full – that’s surprising. I’d been told that they had people coming in from out of state!
Goldberg: “That blouse makes you look like a hooker.”
LIB: Wow. Edgy humor.
LIB:Goldberg is hitting the water bottle hard. He seems to have the burps a bit.
LIB: He’s rolling along. A cheeky tone. Big words.
LIB:He even signed our blog – before breaking the back of his chair at the Rathskellar.
Interesting. Guess all had a good time….except the chair.
UPDATE: The link for LIB was to only one page and has been corrected to page where you can navigate to all the quotes. Also the photo is from Uncle Jimbo’s site and now so noted and linked. My apologies to Uncle Jimbo.
