Steel cage match: Yglesias vs Goldberg

Place your bets ladies and gentlemen, the main event is about to start.

In the red(star) corner we have Matthew "raging bull" Yglesias, weighing in at 4 paragraphs of envious screaming attack frenzy.

If you’re a connoisseur of people pointing out that Jonah Goldberg isn’t a very intelligent man while simultaneously being too polite to come out and say so directly...
Matt of course attended Harvard and studied "philosophy" rendering him an unimpeachable expert on all things political, defense, scientific, economic, and public policy. What's that? I'm hearing cackling from the peanut gallery heckling "Yea right, that plus a buck will get you a cup of joe at Dunkin Donuts out in the real world!".

In the American corner we have Jonah Goldberg who attended Goucher college in Baltimore. Goucher college? WTF is that? Charlie Gibson just tweeted he's never heard of it, and neither have I. Must be one of those matchbook cover mail order diploma mills. Certainly nothing to compare to fracking Harvard!!! Jonah, dude, an uneasy mood seems to be settling into this crowd, I'm just saying... Oh, wait, he did a year overseas as an English teacher. That sounds sort of like a real job. The crowd seems placated for the moment...

Yglesias is hopping up and down gesticulating wildly now talking smack in a big way and throws this zinger down:

...There’s this nice, very cushy gravy train out there awaiting anyone who wants to be a loyal footsoldier and one consequence of that is that the standards in terms of the personnel are quite low.
A strange calm comes over Goldberg after that last throw down and he utters a single hushed word in response:
Indeed.
