Interesting indeed, though I wonder why she thinks David Brooks invented the term "bobo," which has been around in French for ages.

Or why she thinks David Brooks is reactionary. I hope she's better at demography.

@ MCG,

Yes,I agree. David Brooks is banal, perhaps even vapid but he lacks the intellect and integrity to be reactionary. He can only aspire to being a reactionary.

She won't use the words of a reactionary but she will use those of a radical. Very "scientific". She makes some interesting points but, man, does she ever lay it on thick with the Marxian jargon!
