Coup Coo

When is a coup a coup d’état? When the military takes over a democratically elected head of state? Nah. We like Egypt’s moderate overthrow, so it’s no coup.

Was the rise up of the Confederacy a coup? Spielberg’s vision of Goodwin’s Lincoln, however you characterize the Civil War, was a failed operation. Kushner’s screenplay was either edited to oblivion, or it was just bad. Tommy Lee Jones was better than Daniel Day Lewis. Sally Field funny. Not in a good way.

Speaking of French terms, Maureen Dowd’s Bonjour Tristesse column in today’s NYTimes is a sad commentary on what has become of France’s unique culture as a result of YERP-ization caused by the EU. Quel dommage.
