Resume Padding Being Taken to a Whole New Level

Personally, I don't really care if Jonah Goldberg has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and I don't care what he says in his official bio. But this story about pretending to be a Pulitzer nominee is bizarre on so many levels that I can't make sense of it. It doesn't make sense that anyone would do this innocently, but neither does it make sense that anyone would do it knowingly. It's like pretending you were a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. WTF?
