Why? Because they are idiots

Real Clear Politics links "The Killing Machine," at
The New Republic, about Che Guevara, who's the focus of a wave of "radical chic" as Tom Wolfe so memorably put it over 30 years ago.

People in demonstrations in Lebanon, entertainers and other famous-but-not-necessarily-important people are showing up wearing "Che" shirts; and Alvaro Vargas Llosa asks why.

Why? (And I'll cut the political activists some slack, but...) Because they are idiots.
