Credit is due New York Times columnist David Brooks, whose column yesterday raged with quiet but impressive power against Republicans — and, significantly, only against Republicans. Usually Brooks takes swipes at the left that are underhanded while pretending to take swipes at everyone that are evenhanded.
That he resisted what seemed to be a compulsion, or perhaps a reflex like closing your eyes when sneezing, is more than commendable. It’s nearly astonishing.
Especially as the rest of the national-level representatives of conservative America engage in that structural sabotage they call, oh, what was it? Their efforts toward the “culture of doing whatever the hell we want”?
