Default Goldfarb

So this guy's m.o. is pretty straightforward: in the face of facts which are troublesome to the Weekly Standard worldview (of which there are many), just insist that "I'm not convinced" or "That's not clear." Better yet, take the long view: "I think it will take time to sort itself out..." That way you can be uninformed and dogmatic while sounding sage! It's really brilliant. The glibness is just icing on the cake.

Update:

This exchange really says it all. Watch as Goldfarb reveals how unfamiliar he is with the war he insists other people have to keep fighting, and how it amuses him so. Talk about the banality of evil.
