The headline above says pretty much all you need to know about Richard Cohen's latest column. It's hard to argue with his opening statement, however:
We have all become political hacks.
Haw, well, speak for yourself, Richard!. He then proceeds to write a by-the-numbers piece on the inevitability of hairdresser weddings.
Don't go praising politicians for coming out for the nuptials, however: "They didn't lead; they followed," says Cohen, writing about the subject for the very first time.
UPDATE: I'm struck again that Richard Cohen –Richard Cohen!– has the nerve to call anybody else a hack.
