Contra Che chic


Jay Nordlinger is the formidable journalist and gifted managing editor of National Review. One of Jay’s righteous crotchets is his loathing of Che chic. As the linked NR article by Jay has it, he finds Che chic très disgusting. Reader Anthony Szulc shares Jay’s attitude and has alerted us to this retail site, which features contrarian t-shirt messages such as that above. Inspired by Jay, I took my own small whack at Che chic in the 2004 column “Motorpsycho diaries.”

UPDATE: Michael Rubin and Suzanne Gershowitz set forth related thoughts in their May Philadelphia Inquirer column “Putting politics before pacifism.”
