The Lefty sites are abuzz with praise and adulation over this NYT OpEd penned by 'Conservative columnist' David Brooks (including our own J. Marquis):
The Mother of All No-Brainers
They are calling him the "Man of the Hour," saying he has "woken up," and that his words will now "haunt Republicans."
Quite frankly, after reading his article...I can't help but wonder what the hell he's talking about? When the party was being driven by social conservatism the 'moderates' wailed that it should be about the money and not the morals. Now that the party is being driven by Fiscal Conservatives David Brooks is saying that the leaders have "no logic" and lost all "moral decency?" Which is it folks? Can we just be honest and say these folks just don't get it.
It seems that David Brooks, at the age of 50, still doesn't know what he believes. He was a liberal until 1983 --then turned Conservative --now is regressing? So every 20 years or so he changes political stripes? And we thought John Kerry was a flip flopper. Mr. Brooks, you can stay on that side of the aisle....we'd rather not have you.
And let's remind "Conservative columnist" (cough cough) David Brooks that the root of Conservative is CONSERVE. The GOP leaders are (finally) doing exactly what they were charged to do in the last election.
