Jonah Goldberg Would Like To Ruin Downton Abbey For You, And Not With Spoilers

by evanmcmurry

If you’ve been watching this season of Downton Abbey* and gotten a vague feeling of unease, that can now be explained. Sharing anything, even a disconnected hour, with Jonah Goldberg gives me the creeps. More to the point, I like that Goldberg thinks the show must be anathema to us joyless, close-minded, knee jerk liberals because it doesn’t directly dovetail with our worldview. Hey, Downton Abbey is classist and rather conservative, yet liberals can watch and enjoy it without their heads exploding. Who knew?

* Yes you have, liar. Liar!
