On the subject of blogging anonymously, I sent off an e-mail to Jonah Goldberg, who excoriated the practice. The part of the e-mail that Goldberg quoted was:
If it's cowardly to blog anonymously, were Madison, Hamilton, and Jay cowards for publishing the Federalist Papers under the pseudonym "Publius"?
Apparently, I touched a nerve. Or, perhaps better phrased, Goldberg did in his response to me. I'm slightly giddy that I was able to cause a ripple in the deep end of the political blogosphere. This is Goldberg's follow-up.
