Old Media death watch (Richard Cohen edition)

October 5, 2010 Leave a comment

According to Richard Cohen’s latest column, the Tea Party is just like..(wait for it)….the National Guardsmen who killed the college students at Kent State in 1970. Β Or something.

But forget the politics of it. Β This is one seriously bad piece of writing.

Update. I’ll leave it to Ann Althouse to sum up the idiocy of Cohen’s column:

Cohen plunges into his 40-year-old memories about how awful it was when the National Guard shot and killed 4 college students who were protesting the Vietnam War. And naturally, in Cohen’s bike-drained, folk-music befuddled brain, that leads to what’s wrong with… Glenn Beck!
