ROGER SIMON: Syria, Vogue Magazine, and Liberalism as a Fashion Statement. “Generalizations are dangerous, but Vogue magazine may be a better indicator of this liberal world view than the more predictable Newsweek, Huffington Post, or even the New York Times. It is, after all, an arbiter of taste — and modern liberalism is, more than anything, about style. It is largely a fashion statement. You are who you appear to be. Substance is of less importance. Hence, Asma al-Assad is chic, therefore good (well, at least until her family acts out and starts killing people right and left — not cool). On the other hand, conservatives are doughty. They do not dress well. Some of them even go to church in silly bonnets. Their ideas are of no importance because they have no style.”
