The wisdom of Jonah Goldberg

Two conservatives pay money to hear Jonah Goldberg speak in May, 2008, both report the following as a highlight: "If you write it in an email IN ALL CAPS, it has to be true." [Cue guffaws circa 1994.]

No mention of:

P1. Hitler enjoyed health food
P2. Liberals enjoy health food
C. Therefore, liberals are Nazis

P1. Fast food isn't fast enough
P2. Conservatives drive F350s
C. Therefore, conservatives prefer Arby's

I've been puzzling out the "Voting against Barack Obama does not make one a racist" syllogism, arriving at its corollary, "Voting for John McCain does not make one not a racist."
