Another Bet.

Jonah Goldberg today:

Jonathan Chait insists that the GOP will impeach Obama if they take back the House. I think he’s nuts. I’ll bet him $500 to the charity of the winner’s choice it doesn’t happen.

Credit where it's due: this wager is slightly more tasteful than the last one, in February 2005:

Since [Juan Cole] doesn't want to debate anything except his own brilliance, let's make a bet. I predict that Iraq won't have a civil war, that it will have a viable constitution, and that a majority of Iraqis and Americans will, in two years time, agree that the war was worth it. I'll bet $1,000 (which I can hardly spare right now).

Needless to say, Goldberg was wrong about everything and the parenthetical was probably a lie.
