I think Cohen meant that the campaign has been a drag to cover, not that such a campaign should not have happened.


Well, yes, I'm being a little unfair, perhaps - but it's such a prissy, silly column I don't feel too bad about it...


Very well stated. He views the entire Democratic primary in terms of how it makes him feel. What a narcissist.

And the most offensive of all is that the Bob Dylan quote is, in fact, "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."

Nathan beat me to it. Cohen obviously missed the entire point of "My Back Pages." Not too surprising -- missing the point seems to be par for the course with Cohen.


You can't blame Georgetown for Cohen's silliness, your average African American congressional staffer can't even catch a cab there.


I learned years ago that Cohen's not worth reading. Save yourself a few minutes every Tuesday and ignore him.

Richard Cohens entire career has been devoted to debunking the theory that Jews are smart.

A rarity. An intelligent and well written blog with intelligent and well writing commenters. Except this one.

Worse facts could have been mentioned, even if Mr. Cohen doesn't realize it yet. No person running for the presidency - neither the person of color, nor the person of gender, and certainly not the former specialist in aerial delivery of weapons of mass destruction - has found it useful to point out that causing the death of perhaps a million Iraqis by a "war of choice" is the largest crime against humanity of the 21st century - so far. Fair trials for the war criminals may seem an impossible dream - but

how you gonna have a dream come true?"

He didn't mention Farrakhan did he? At least give him points for improvement shown.
