    David Brooks on Trump

    If more conservatives expressed themselves like David Brooks, I might be more inclined to lean a little more to the right. I like this paragraph from his latest column: Donald Trump is epically unprepared to be president. He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His...

    David Brooks recommends Hillary be who I thought she would be

    Brooks doesn't much like Sanders at all. His candidate is Hillary. But he seems to want to change her. Not just in this article but in his commentary on PBS NewsHour. The Roosevelt Approach Brooks can't seem to get Sanders right. Berates him for being a dreamer but calls him a...

    David Brooks: The American Idea and Today’s G.O.P.

    The American Idea and Today's G.O.P. Excellent read from someone who is apparently now a R.I.N.O., if the teabaggers do say so themselves.

    Steven Brooks pleads not guilty

    This is a hilarious story. Have you heard about this? It starts out jaw-dropping, and it just keeps getting better and better. The story here is that state legislator Steven Brooks (D-NV) was stripped of his seat by his peers - because of "increasingly odd behavior". I read into that about a...

    Romney's "Official" biography, by David Brooks

    I've read one of Brook's books, The Social Animal, where he proves he can nastily humorous, but that humor rarely gets into his columns. He makes an exception today: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/28/opinion/brooks-the-real-romney.html?_r=1&hp This is a brief moment from "The Real Romney:"...

    I guess here in the US that would be the equivalent of obstruction, but I'm not sure. Interesting. Rebekah Brooks to be charged with perverting the course of justice | UK news | guardian.co.uk

    Brooks on McCrystal and the Culture of Exposure

    David Brooks from the NYT... To get the broader context, you'll have to read the article linked above, but to the point about the good General, I think Brooks is mistaken. First of all, when we have "kvetching" like we did with McCrystal in the political realm, the worst we have is...

    David Brooks foretells the Teabagger's future

    In David Brooks column this week, he starts out describing, very favorably, a hypothetical common man of virtuous work ethic who becomes angry with the state of US politics. Worth reading here: I'll use a Texas newspaper, so Six will read it...

    David Brooks on the Morality of Economics

    I thought this was an amazing article, even if the righties are going to use it against the administration. I can't help but think that he's dead on, though I believe this to be more of an attack of big business than big government I think it strikes all sides... Centuries ago, historians...
