Tomorrow on Brooks 

posted by Scott @ 4:22 PM
I was waiting for someone to point out how ridiculous David Brooks' op-ed article was the other day. For a guy who defines himself as a political-culture critic, Brooks routinely exudes some of the lamest observations and quips. He's just so out of touch (flannel-shirt wearing screen writers?), and his attempts to act like he's "with it" make his humor and cultural analysis funny in itself. He sounds like a dorky Dad trying to talk slang with his kids, who just roll their eyes and cringe with embarrassment. He's the Republican Seinfeld. Tom Tomorrow concludes that "The rest of us in this funny-joke-making business might as well just pack it in. We have met our match."
