David Brooks has a new fucking column out, and I’m seeing outrage at its banality everywhere. I don’t give a damn. Brooks is a symptom of the corruption in our media; just a great big pustule oozing on the surface that tells you something is sick and rotten underneath. I’m going to just let driftglass tell the story, so go read that. It’s a long summarizing moan of despair, covering Brooks & Newt Gingrich & Rush Limbaugh & the High Holy Church of Bothsiderism. Liberals have been exactly correct about the bankruptcy of the Right all along, and it doesn’t matter, because the Murdochs and Zuckers and Sulzburgers just chuckle and throw money at the festering batshit.
History will note that the New York Times keeps shoveling cash at David Brooks for his regular insipid apologetics for elitist criminality.
