Victor Davis Hanson is Very Cool -- but not to Liberals I'll Bet!

I don't listen to Rush much because I only tune in when I'm in the car and I tend to be a home body. But today I had an appointment in Northern Virginia and a two-hour ride, so I turned on Rush just in time to hear him reading an article by Victor Davis Hanson about the Power of Cool. All I can say is "Wow!" Did he ever peg it. Read the article here and see if you're as impressed as I was. Maybe this explains why the media is willing to lie and doctor tapes. They are pursuing the image of "cool." Hanson does a top notch job of portraying the hypocrisy of liberals in this amazing piece. Anybody whose liberal is cool and can be cut all the slack he or she needs. (One of his examples is Bill Clinton.) Conservatives are very un-cool and need to be smacked down with sarcasm and ridicule. Here's how Hanson ends his article:

In short, millions of well-off Americans, from the entering college student to the full professor of law, from the billionaire thief to the president of the United States himself, endlessly chase cool.
And why would they not? Cool is now America’s holy grail that allows the elite and the rich not just to pursue and enjoy nice things, but to damn others who do the same.  
Yup...just as long as you're a liberal.

I was "cool" when "cool" wasn't cool.
