Nice commentary, Louis, explaining the background to the place
from which Cooper burnishes his credentials as a journalist as
he bashes all of his former allegiances. It's so tiresome today
to see ex-leftoids like Cooper following that familiar rite of
passage: moving over toward the right. He's not become 100%
rightist, however. He supported Obama and not any of the other
Democrats who ran against Obama in the Democratic primary, but
as to Latin America where he was once a "revolutionary" by his
own lights, he's become a boring, predictable red-baiter today.

Cooper's attack on Cuba is getting a decent run for its money
at the Mother Jones website, in the discussion area, with lots
of postings, pro and con:
