Vice Ain't Right

— Joanne McNeill has the lowdown on paunchy aging hipster Gavin McGinnes. His claim to be conservative was apparently a spoof. This supports my argument below that claiming to be conservative is likely to be cooler than actually being conservative. McGinnes does a great job of showing how very uncool conservatives are by showing us just how eager they are to associate themselves with anybody, ANYBODY, with a jot of hpister cred.

  1. Spot on. Bad decisions should be punished by failure so that the mismanaged assets can be acquired by more competent and responsible people.
    Now, if only the fed can summon the courage to let AIG (and an airline or two in the inevitable future) fail… that would be something.
