GG090416: George Will is a douchebag

April 16, 2009

George F. Will – America’s Bad Jeans [Via: Philosoraptor] — Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances. But the appearances that people choose to present in public are cues from which we make inferences about their maturity and respect for those to whom they are presenting themselves. — A rejoinder: anyone who wears a business suit is a tool and should think about what they’ve bought into. Also: “communicate indifference” is a contradiction in terms. Don’t flatter yourself. Lastly, you needn’t make the inference: I don’t respect you. But that’s not why I wear jeans. —

    Only George Will would quote Edmund Burke to lambaste a pair of pants.
