Zapped by the Trickster Roseanne

Part 4 in the Roseanne Reboot Blog Discussion

In Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, Otho Fenlock, the New York interior decorator, is caught acting badly and stripped of his hip clothes and arrogant ways and zapped into a leisure suit by Beetlejuice himself. Horror of horrors: the hipster becomes the hayseed. Thanks to Roseanne on ABC, the American left has been zapped by another trickster as funny as Beetlejuice; their screams and gnashing of teeth taking us back to the night of Trump’s victory. The American left has been caught in the middle of main street USA, trying to hide with skinny arms, not their nakedness, but their plaid leisure suit.

Whether it’s a zinger from Roseanne or a sublime factoid of historical reality from Victor Davis Hanson, the elites have been driven from the Garden of Hipness, even though they still control the educational system, Hollywood, and the media. The left is no longer hip.
