Where Charity And Love Reside

We see that Jonah Goldberg has signed up for another book, called The Tyranny of Cliches. I understand why cliches such as "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and "love one another" irk Jonah so. It's hard work screwing money of the suffering middle class, and weekend jaunts to Paris, while most enjoyable, cannot compensate for the constant nagging liberals inflict on the world. Love, peace and charity are the oldest and hoariest of cliches, meant to elevate the inferior and drag down the superior. Why should they help anyone else? Why can't they kill other people? Why should they try to understand anyone who is different? They don't want to and they're not going to. All this talk of how conservatives have no empathy--don't they know that that's a good thing? It's the only way they can ignore suffering, both their own and everyone else's.

Has jonah asked his readers for help yet? Cliches are so hard to understand... "a stitch in time saves nine!" Nine what? Jonah wonders.

Forget the title. Forget the content. It's all about the cover art.

I predict he moves from smilies to LOLCats.
