Senator accuses Obama of trading in hard hat for "Hipster Fedora."

Orrin Hatch today accused Obama of abandoning the working class and donning a "Hipster fedora and a double skim latte."

Here's the story:

I wonder if he'll also grow a beard and start drinking PBR ironically.

There's no way a 77-year-old guy from Utah came up with that line, but it probably did come from someone unhip in his office. I don't think hipsters drink stuff you get at Starbucks.

President, I served with Jack Abramhoff, I knew Jack Abramoff, Jack Abramoff was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Abramoff.

Is that a fedora, I can never distinguish between types of hats.

I think that's a Panama, but that's even cooler.

I'd hope he wouldn't have to don a double-skim latte.

He can't be a hipster without a beard. If he had a beard he'd be Wyatt Cenac.

I know, actually. I'm still kicking myself for only buying a fedora there and not grabbing a Panama, too. Fedoras are too hot in the summer.

Obama was a Jeremy Lin fan before he was Jeremy Lin, so he's a basketball hipster.

Hipster fedoras are the ones with the narrow brims, right? Maybe we should take up a collection and send him a fez. Fezzes are cool.

A hat can be both a fedora and a Panama hat. "Panama" refers to the material it's made of and "fedora" refers to the shape.

Obama publicly drank a PBR on his 2008 campaign, and bloggers were debating whether that was working class or hipster of him.

Depends if it was ironically or not.

The fedora favored by hipsters is the trilby.

Yeah, but he's still a Lin fan after Lin became famous, so doesn't that wipe out his hipster cred?

Is it true, by the way, as a friend of mine claims, that hipsters have by now co-opted not just trilbys, fedoras and New Eras but in fact... EVERY kind of hat in the known universe?

So that there now is NO type of hat a man could wear without having to assume that passersby will take him for a hipster?

I am pretty sure that you could get away with wearing a Tam o' Shanter without being accused of hipsterism (at least by any rational observer).

Also, those big Q-Tip hats the guards at Buckingham wear. Other than that, it's all hipster.

If the rest of your clothing makes you look like a douchebag then yes you're going to be mistaken for a hipster.

If a man in his forties (or older) is wearing a fedora with a suit do you really think he's a hipster?

Here's a man in his 40's whose wearing a fedora, who is a douchebag and yet is not a hipster.

(also, firefox's spell check should really recognize the word douchebag, its like the third most frequently used word on the internet)

Yes, a trilby is a narrow-brimmed fedora. A porkpie, unlike fedoras and trilbys, has a crown with a circular cross-section.

Thanks to everyone for the explanations. I feel informed.

I'd say I feel hipper, but that's just not possible.

But are we certain that's what Orin said? It could have been something similar and simply misunderstood because he hadn't spit out the oil executives pecker.
