Babbling Brooks Asks, What Went Wrong?


Over on Commentary’s blog, Jennifer Rubin draws our attention to David Brooks apparently doing his best satirical caricature of David Brooks.

Yes, David, what did the world do to so transform the wonderfully moderate Mr. Obama? How could it happen that such a paragon of post-partisanship be forced by events — and amid an increasing political rancor that we here at the New York Times were able to see he was poised and determined to take us beyond – to become a reluctant radical?

Curse you, wretched history!

Brooks somehow falls short of telling us we weren’t worthy of our leader. Could another, less amusing and more biting twist on these videos be far behind? (The funniest line in this one is the resignation about cap-and-trade; Hitler doesn’t read WaPo apparently.)
