Poor Reading Comprehension at The Daily Beast: Howard Kurtz: “The right has come up with a new line of attack against Barack Obama: He’s too cool“.

On the contrary, Howard!  The general tenor of the right’s reaction to the president’s “slow-jam” performance has been about the incongruity of some Obama supporters pointing at it as evidence of Obama being cool, when everybody knows he’s not doing cool things.

Unless raiding marijuana clinics, the drone strikes in Yemen (a country with which we’re not at war), and opposing gay marriage are cool.  Is that what passes for cool in elite media circles these days?
