Kennedy's Camelot Myth is Irresistible

As I noted over Instapundit.com (why yes, I am part of the Army of Davids Guest Bloggers sitting in this week for the hardest working man in the Blogosphere), Noemie Emery has a new article at the Washington Examiner in which she writes:

A few weeks ago, our colleague Gene Healy asked for an end to the Camelot movies, a noble idea that is not going to happen. The story and themes are simply too powerful, the characters too eternal and too enigmatic, the appeal too universal to fade.

Of course the Camelot brand-name itself was something that Jackie Kennedy created in the immediate aftermath of  Kennedy’s death, as James Piereson wrote in his magnum-opus 2006 article “Lee Harvey Oswald and the Liberal Crack-Up” in Commentary that served as the central thesis of his book Camelot and the Cultural Revolution, the following year.

Much more on that here.
