Elites find salvation in cool

May 23, 2012

Leftie elites find remission of sins and righteousness for condemnation of others in the politically correct personal style of coolness

Seeming to be separate, above and beyond the hot passions of the commonality, they establish a pristine persona that pretends to be on a mission to save the masses from the imagined sources of the servere painfulness of their existence.

Our president is perhaps the prima in pares among the saints of the calendar of coolness.

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.
