Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – By the way, Mr. Goldberg, while we’re on the subject, if you want to start convicting people and accusing them of bigotry and bile, why don’t you read to your National Review Online audience — or would you like me to do it for you? — some of the more particular and unbelievably racist sentiments and writings of the great Abraham Lincoln?

Mike: Jonah Goldberg, “Rand Paul’s Paleo Problem.” What is this? Let’s inquire. “In a climate where Mitt Romney and John McCain are demonized, Rand Paul has a lot of work ahead.”
Rand Paul is the most interesting contender for the Republican nomination. And when I say interesting, I mean that in the broadest sense.
A case in point: Last week, the Kentucky senator hit some turbulence when the Washington Free Beacon reported that Jack Hunter, Paul’s aide and the co-author of his book, The Tea Party Goes to Washington, was once the Southern Avenger. [Mike: Actually, Jonah, last I checked, Jack’s online sobriquets @SouthernAvenger and Southern Avenger on those illusory communities known as Facebook and Twitter are still active. I don’t know, maybe he’s not using them any longer, but they’re still there.]

Citizen, you will listen, and you will always, for the rest of your natural-born existence, and 30 generations hence, you will always be a member of this Union of states, I’m sorry, of this nation. Don’t you even think about leaving. I love how people love to make these pronunciations while going through their third and fourth divorces. I don’t know if that applies to Goldberg, but there are many who do fit that description….
