The Economist Thinks Dashboard Confessional, Tight Pants, Earnestness All Totally Suck

I’m trying to figure out if The Economist’s (firewalled) thumbnail description of emo kids quoted below is a triumph of cluelessness or a triumph of incisiveness:

Bryan [that’s Rod Bryan, Arkansas’s independent gubernatorial candidate] is gaining support from disenfranchised Generation Xers and “Emo kids” (young people afflicted with melancholia), besides baby-boomers who are disillusioned with the spin and double-talk of politics.

Actually, no, I’m not. Incisiveness. By a mile.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
