The people at Salon aren't quite as dumb as they look.
It’s not often that a Texas-reared conservative and a liberal-seeming Hollywood showrunner concur on something, but this week revealed a strange conjunction: Both Jeb Bush and Matthew Weiner don’t want you to think for yourself.
Now, that is perceptive but exactly backwards: it's the people at Salon who don't want you to think for yourself. Don't believe me? Read it for a week. It's all about maintaining orthodoxy in the face of whatever threats might prop up. And that is what makes their take on the the Mad Men finale so interesting; they think it's a threat to liberal orthodoxy.
