Slayer of liberal cliches watches as Piers Morgan unwittingly slays himself with cliches

I missed it on purpose because being the caring, sympathetic type, I can’t stand watching the failing CNN’s Piers Morgan implode whenever he has another smart conservative on. Luckily, columnist David Limbaugh watched. His take on Morgan’s interview with that slayer of the liberal clichés, Jonah Goldberg, is great. And it served as a reminder for me to buy Goldberg’s latest book, sure to be his next NYT best-seller, The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas. (UPDATE: which I just did, for my slaying Kobo iPad app. LINK.)

Piers Morgan Slays Himself in Goldberg Interview

There was a silver lining for Jonah Goldberg in Piers Morgan’s ambush interview of him allegedly concerning his new book, “The Tyranny of Cliches.” Jonah couldn’t have written a better script to illustrate his book’s theme. …

At one point in the interview, the prey (Goldberg) captured the hunter (Morgan), with Morgan exclaiming, “I’m not batting for Democrats or Republicans,” to which Goldberg replied during one of Morgan’s rare pauses for oxygen, “If you’re not batting for Democrats, it’s a wonderful approximation of it.” Game, set, match.

You see, Morgan obviously doesn’t believe he’s displaying a liberal bias. He is, undeniably, lying to himself — again, vindicating Goldberg’s argument. …

Here’s another good take from BigHollywood.com’s John Nolte: Exclusive: Jonah Goldberg – Piers Morgan’s ‘Hostile’ Interview ‘Proved the Point’ of My Bookincludes video.

Here’s a helpful Amazon.com link.

Jonah Goldberg also wrote the NYT best seller Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change, which is one of the best books I’ve read in years.
