Oogedy-Boogedyism?

I just came from the excellent National Review Institute, so maybe they are on my mind more than usual ...  In any event, in perusing the Corner, I see that even the most erudite among us are now in agreement that Kathleen Parker is really an Extra-Terrestrial who is attempting to take over the world (Okay, that's really me.  But they do seem to agree she has gone too far).

... Jonah Goldberg's advice to Kathleen:

"Please stop bragging about how courageous you are for weathering a storm of nasty email you invite on yourself by dancing to a liberal tune. You aren't special for getting nasty email, from the right or the left."
