David Brooks = Moron

David Brooks' needs a course on logic.

1. Strong Families are built on self-sacrafice and hard work
2. Couples holding separate checking accounts are now more common than ever.

From these two points he draws the conclusion.

3. Separate banking weakens families.

This fool doesn't deserve an op-ed column in the Pennysaver, let alone the NYT.

David Brooks is a mental midget who had built a career by positioning himself as the voice of reason between the two poles of "liberal" and "conservative." I can't actually believe he actually believes what he writes; no doubt, he has a top-notch panel of PR and marketing advisors with which he consults. He wrote that horrific article, pre-Abu Ghraib, warned us "good-hearted" Americans about the necessary atrocities we'd have to stomach, Spielbergian innocents that we are. In retrospect, he'd probably caught wind of the scandal-to-be and was "softening" up the rest of the commentariat and their lemming-like readers to for the ultimate passing of that wind. Pun intended. This guy is no journalist, no commentator, and no sociologist. We should fire HIM out of a cannon, not HST's remains.

Joe Lieberman is the David Brooks of the Senate. There are other words for people who triangulate between "us" and "them," the most polite is probably sell-out. I love Dean because he attacks, I love Boxer because she attacks. We need to go after those who would place themselves in the middle every bit as hard as those on the extreme right. By the way, McCain has been up to no good of late, let's get on his case too.
