You Don't Shake Your Moneymaker

The question of whether National Review will fire John Darbyshite is laughable. "Darb" brings money to the magazine. He's a featured speaker on National Review next fundraising cruise:

John Derbyshire's columns appear in National Review and New English Review and cover a broad range of political-cultural topics, including immigration, China, history, mathematics, and race. Derbyshire's 1996 novel, Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream, was a New York Times "Notable Book of the Year". His 2004 non-fiction book, Prime Obsession, won the Mathematical Association of America's inaugural Euler Book Prize. A new political book, We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism, was released in September 2009.

If Derb could stay on the NR cruise all year 'round, he'd occupy the racial utopia of his dreams.

Derb will become the latest poster boy for conservative victimhood, and the National Review can't afford to lose such a prize to the Daily Choler.
