(PJMEDIA) — This title of this article is tendentious because, in truth, I already know that liberals are the new squares. Not only that – they’re terminally out of it.
But first, let’s roll back. Some time ago, for these web pages, I wrote of the Death (not the Birth) of the Cool. This was picked up and amplified recently, and graciously, by Ed Driscoll. As men of “a certain age,” as the saying goes, Ed and I remember Miles and Thelonious – the days when cool was cool and pot was a reefer.
Those days are not only gone, they’ve faded so far in the rear view mirror that not even the slightest ghost remains, only some imaginary version of an imaginary version. Cool is dead and now liberalism is the squarest of the square.
