The Stupid Goldberg 

After a few days of arguing that Reagan was the most popular President, Jonah Goldberg now has a rambling and incoherent response to the cold, hard fact that Clinton was more popular. On one hand, Goldberg argues, Reagan's unpopularity is proof that he was a bold leader. On the other hand, Reagan was more popular than Clinton. My favorite point:
Third, the fact that Clinton's numbers were so high is a testament to the fact that Clinton desired to be popular more than he desired to be effective.
In other words, if something is true about Reagan, it is because was everything good and wonderful in the world. Clinton, however, was a godless commie bastard.

UPDATE: Pandagon, unsuprisingly, does a much better job at what I have attempted to do.
