A right good cup of coffee

August 12, 2008

I haven’t been in a lot of coffeehouses, so I’ll have to take Dave Beckham’s word for it that they’re hotbets of liberal radicalism. Even if it is true, it’s certainly because of the kind of people who go to coffeehouses, not because a bunch of sneaky progressives came up with brilliant business plans. So I don’t think Beckham’s solution is going to fulfill any great unmet need in Crown Point:

It’s called the Conservative Cafe. Outside, red-white-and-blue bunting frames the brick building. As described by the Chicago Tribune: Ann Coulter books near the fireplace, a Ronald Reagan portrait on the wall, Fox News on televisions and T-shirts for sale, bearing such messages as: “Zip It, Hippie,” “Peace through Superior Firepower” or “Silly liberal. … Paychecks are for Workers.” (See a video on Fox’s Good Morning Chicago.)

Personally, I think it would be more fun to hang out at the liberal coffeehouse, quietly listening in on their secrets when they’re all caffeined up and jabbering.

    Coffeehouses with…
    No Jazz?
    No beret-wearing, goatee-clad armchair philosophers?
    What HAS the world come to?
