I'd be offended by this, except for the fact that he's right:
Never in the history of this country has there been a generation that's cast a longer shadow without really having done anything to earn it than the children of the 60s -- specifically the so-called Woodstock Generation. For the most part, they're thoroughly undeserving of the immortality they've pretentiously bequeathed to themselves.
[. . .]
Such is the real legacy of the 60s, as filtered through the haze of bong smoke still looked back on with fondness by many of those who were there: It introduced the most narcissistic, self-congratulatory, self-indulgent generation this country has ever seen.
Remember the scene in "Animal House" where Otter tells Flounder, "You f----- up -- you trusted us." Well, America, you f----- up -- you paid attention to us. And for the whole 40th anniversary year, you get to relive the nightmare all over again.
