ROGER SIMON: Obama And The Death Of The Cool. “Our media, our journos, depend on being thought cool and, consequently and perhaps more importantly, thinking of themselves as cool. When they suspect they are not, they begin to behave like worker bees when queen is killed. They tend to run around and act out. After a while, they seem lost. Their numbers dwindle. This is just because cool depended on a hive mind in the first place. It was little more than fad. We are well rid of it. And in part because cool is gone, the remaining liberals are the new reactionaries. They are the ones trapped in the past, the enemies of the future. Not that there are so many liberals anymore, outside the media.”
