NYT Columnist David Brooks calls Sarah Palin a “joke”
The Constitutional Alamo ^ | 11/15/09 | Michael Naragon

Posted on 11/15/2009 4:34:32 PM PST by Publius772000

McCain standard bearer and “conservative” columnist David Brooks launched his own salvo at actual conservative Sarah Palin on ABC’s This Week, joining other bitter RINOs who have attacked the former Alaska governor in recent days.

If I may channel Chandler Bing for a moment: “Can he be any more elitist?” Perhaps Brooks hasn’t seen the Amazon sales lists, the thousands attending her book signings, or, for that matter, the book sales list published by his own worthless rag. Remember, folks, this is the same guy who talked about how great John McCain was as a candidate and the very same David Brooks who continues to claim that the GOP must become far more moderate if it wants to win the big elections.

Uhhh, Earth to Brooksy: Your moderate lost big. The only reason he got the votes he did was because of his running mate. What was her name again? Oh, yeah. Congrats on that one. (Apologies to those who expect a higher standard from me… I just finished watching Zoolander, a film that appeals to the higher intellect about as well as David Brooks does.)

Brooks also does a good job of pulling up his skirt and showing himself to be a not-so-secret Obama supporter. Nice work, Dave. You can’t take her seriously, yet Obama was a serious candidate in 2008 and effective president in 2009? Wait, who’s the joke again?

He has to trash Palin. That’s the only way he gets any attention.

David Brook is a has been leftist who has a very small audience and an opinion that on a few accept. One can always tell someone’s effectiveness not only by their supporters but also by the comments from their detractors.

He must have been talking about Obama. How long as it been, three months already and STILL no word on Afghanistan. But wait, Obama is a genius, the genius is at work, he must take his sweet ass time. I wouldn’t want him to fall and bruise his brain. Like Bill Kristol said today on Fox News “Sarah palin would NEVER have bowed”

Amen to that... I hope the nation survives long enough for us to elect a president that doesn’t grovel at the feet of every other world leader. Seeing that bow, I wanted to give Barack a slap to the head, a la Mr. Miyagi.

Check this out. Read it today on C4P

Check out this little tidbit from the book

“Also on the show that evening, she writes, were Alec Baldwin, Josh Brolin, Mark Wahlberg, the singer Adele, and the director Oliver Stone. Stone, she writes, is a “supporter of Communist dictator Hugo Chavez” who once referred to the president as “the devil himself.”
Palin says she refused to shake Stone’s hand.”

Compare that to Obama bowing down to every dictator he sees. Note the difference

...David Brooks calls Sarah Palin a “joke”

David Brooks is a person who is constantly awestruck by his perception of his own greatness...

File this story under “People who live in glass houses”.

Considering that Brooks makes a living with his writing skills, you’d think he could come up with derisive or dismissive epithets that aren’t so much associated with the New York Times.

Coming from the New York Times, “joke” is high praise, indeed.

I would love to see Rush have another of his Dave’s Bake Sales, this time featuring Sarah and Michelle and Liz plus people like John Bolton and Ollie North. He could play it up as a chance for conservative Americans to step up and show the Left just what they’re up against.

Have it someplace in middle America in a venue that could handle upwards of a million people.

Just a dream, but why dream small?

I saw the segment this morning and he kept talking about "intellectuals".

What I thought was really interesting was that Gwen Iffel "gets it". She was telling everyone not to underestimate Palin, that she is very popular. Seemed that the dems were more intellectually honest in that regard than the pubs.

I'm trying to prevent my Barack from developing middle age Jimmy Carters, but I heard that Preparation H has an ointment for that. LOL Although Rush doesn't seem to think that there's enough of it on the planet to get rid of the 'mothership'. ROTFLMFAO

“I’d like an honest answer why Brooks so hates Palin.”

Here’s why:

Because Palin is female and straight.

Remember when David Brooks complained about male Senators keeping their “hand on his thigh” during entire dinners?

He’s queer as a 3-dollar bill, and gays are obligated to hate Palin and Carrie Prejean. They have no choice.

Sometimes gay men, like DAVID BROOKS, say things without realizing they just “outed” themselves.

David Brooks: “Oh, I’ve had dinners where Republican senators had their hands on my thigh under the table the whole time! For like 2 hours! Republicans are soooo gay!”

Thanks for the tip Nancy.

Dave was a guy who called Rush Limbaugh about 10 years ago, maybe a bit longer. He wanted a freebie subscription to Rush's newsletter. It was something like $39 a year and he said he simply couldn't afford it at that point in his life. Rush was sympathetic but suggested that instead of getting freebie that he hold a bake sale. This was back when kids and schools were having bake sales to help reduce the national debt, a corny Liberal idea that sounded great but did little good.

Dan agreed and then Rush said he would help support the bake sale and show up himself. It was some little town in, I forget where, maybe Colorado. Anyway, Rush pushed it for a month or so and a huge number of people showed up, something on the order of 100,000. Rush came by helicopter and said that they flew over miles and miles of traffic jams.

I'm sure others can provide more info, and I might be off a bit on some of my recollections, but I'm pretty close.

I would like to see another Dave's Bake Sale, this time with Sarah and Michelle and Liz and some dyed in the wool conservatives like John Bolton and Ollie North.

My guess Rush could get nearly a million people to show up!

Here's the link to the Wikipedia blurb on the event: Dan's Bake Sale

David Brooks is an asshat liberal GOP but I think the gay you are rightfully excoriating is David Brock a former conservative who is a out in the open fag and once worked for Heritage and Am Spectator before getting cozy with Hillary and then starting far left kook site Media Matters.

I often confuse the two as well.

Brooks is no doubt a metero New York sissy who probably can’t tell a butt from a barrel but he is married with three evolved tadpoles.

There’s a reason he writes for the NY Slimes and it’s not his conservative credentials. He seems to fit in perfectly at the liberal rag. It must be the secret gay bathhouse in the basement that has him hooked.

could be...personally I think he hates Sarah Palin’s Christian Conservatiam.

I can fairly accurately specualate why that is but Brooks would never admit it and neither will social liberals like him on this forum either.

and thank God, there are precious few social liberals here

but they are the first to call anyone bigot that suits them

Close.

The real reason is he is jealous of all the male attention from real men directed towards Sarah Palin.

He has to settle for Barney Frank. /sarc>

That'd get anyone resentful.

Cheers!

Brooks in 2006...talking about Obama:

“I remember distinctly an image of–we were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant,” Brooks says, “and I’m thinking, a) he’s going to be president and b) he’ll be a very good president.”

David is actually a Main Line (Radnor to be exact) douchebag. Those who've ever spent alot of time in Philly (or have family there, as do I) know exactly what I am talking about. Main Liners were metrosexuals long before metrosexuality was "cool."

David Brooks has one issue and that is the gay agenda. He will be left, right - whatever - as long as his sexual behavior is adored and placed above all else in society.

He hates Palin because she is a Christian. He hates all conservatives who oppose him changing the meaning of marriage and family.
