The Rebirth of the Cool, Popularity (A Brief Post)

The rebirth of the cool:  The Solipsist likes President Obama.  That was probably clear from earlier posts, but here's an example of why.  According to today's Times, during a meeting with congressional leaders to discuss the economy and plans to revive it, the President got into a minor argument with Representative Eric Cantor (R-VA).  Mr. Cantor was expressing a standard Republican line on tax policy, and Mr. Obama basically responded thus: "You have some good points, and I respect your position.  We just have some basic philosophical differences.  And (oh, by the way) I'm the President."  Just awesome.

Popularity: For the second straight day, the article topping the Times' list of "most e-mailed" articles was the one featuring a report on vulgar place-names in England (see "The Solipsist" of January 23).  This all goes to support a theory that this commentator has been investigating for some time now: All Americans are 5 years old.
