Crunchy Cons

I don't get it. Yes, Whole Foods sells good stuff. Yes, materialism is bad. But crunchy cons? Nope. Jonah Goldberg has a great critique. My favorite passage is this:
But, in my own defense, I don't think this is because I have failed to turn my face to the warm beam of God's enlightenment, radiantly glowing forth from inside the cellophane oyster shell of a Whole Foods couscous platter. I think my failure is more prosaic than that.
That's just a nice bit of writing.
