very good read and absolutely true.....but cool is in the eyes of the beholder....not for a moment do I think Obama's cool. He's an effiminate poser. A fake

But the media (left) paint him in a light of "cool" as they did Slick and John Edwards. The dance with the stars crowd will swallow that cool shit whole

After seeing him throw out that first pitch I don't think its possible to call him cool.

Anyone past high school age who even thinks about being cool, probably isn't

I have GOT to put this on a billboard around Sunset & Doheny in LA.

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.

Obama gave up fifteen runs without retiring a batter, and got no decision. George Bush took the loss.

If cool is what elected Obama then republicans need to figure out how to get some. Mitt is Father Knows Best redux.

Maybe we need a Father who knows best, as opposed to a tool who knows nothing.
