Did you like our #TCOT Tuesday profile of the National Review’s Jonah Goldberg? Read our exclusive interview with him where we talk twitter, the best advice his dad gave him and why he’s a conservative (hint: it involves tattoos).
Dr. Jason Whitman is a busy man. When he’s not practicng eye care as an optometrist in Cody, Wyoming, he chairs the Young Republican National Federation’s Policy Committee and the Wyoming Young Republicans. He also writes for Big Government.
“Twitter is like the king of RSS feeds. I find I can skip opening up a single news site and still be fully informed by lunchtime.” If he wasn’t already addicted to watching the news, he says he’d “never turn on the television!”
The recent battle in Washington between people of faith and the Obama administration about the Department of Health and Human Services’ new contraception mandate clearly illustrates that nothing is sacred in politics.
It’s situations like this that prompt blogger Thomas Peters (@AmericanPapist) to consider attempts to “silence and marginalize” conservatives and people of faith as the number one threat to the conservative movement.
If you’re even slightly interested in politics and you have a twitter account, you’re probably one of the 32,528 people already following Jonah Goldberg on twitter. With an average of 41 tweets a day, @JonahNRO definitely falls in the category of prolific tweeters who are hard to miss.
Goldberg is an editor for National Review Online and writes for the LA Times and USA Today. He’s the author of a #1 New York Times best-selling book, Liberal Fascism, and is set to release his second book The Tyranny of Clichés: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas on May 1. Goldberg is also a Fox News Contributor and a fellow at American Enterprise Institute, where he got his start in Washington.
