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.  Or something.

But forget the politics of it.  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!
