David Brooks writes a good article here, with some biting commentary, but it's hard to take the guy seriously. When the Obama lovefest was going full tilt he fell for it hook, line and sinker humping the guys leg. But now that the winds have shifted he wants to be in the good graces of those right of center types. Not gonna happen.
Given all that, it's worth a read:
Lesson one. Think happy thoughts. Never allow yourself to dwell on downer, depressing ones.
Over the past year, many Democrats have resolutely paid attention to those things that make them feel good, and they have carefully filtered out those negative things that make them feel sad.
For example, Democrats and their media enablers have paid lavish attention to Christine ODonnell and Carl Paladino, even though these two Republican candidates have almost no chance of winning. Thats because it feels so delicious to feel superior to opponents you consider to be feeble-minded wackos. On the other hand, Democrats and their enablers have paid no attention to Republicans like Rob Portman, Dan Coats, John Boozman and Roy Blunt, who are likely to actually get elected. It doesnt feel good when your opponents are experienced people who simply have different points of view. The existence of these impressive opponents introduces tension into the chi of your self-esteem.
Similarly, the Democrats and their enablers have paid lavish attention to the Tea Party this year. Its nice to feel more sophisticated than those hordes of Middle Americans, who say silly things like Get government off my Medicare.
On the other hand, Democrats have paid little attention to the crucial group in this election the independent moderates who supported President Obama in 2008 but flocked away during the health care summer of 2009 and now support the GOP by landslide proportions.
Dude, you are just NOW coming to the realization that the majority of Democrat leaders are a bunch of arrogant sob's? Conservatives of every stripe have been yelling this from the rooftops for over a year....where in the hell have you been?

what a jerk brooks is. he supported Obama over mcCain. NOW he sees the light.
how about explaining how he helped get Obama elected. what a jerk.
brooks’s accuracy is fast approaching that of a broken clock...
Brooks is a weiner.
Even this “I’ve snapped out it” article is worthless and stupid, like everything else Brooks writes.
David Brooks is NOT a conservative.. hes a progressive..
While an interesting article, David Brooks sticks his finger in the air and whichever way the wind blows is where he’s going. No convictions, except to be loved by his fellow elitist New Yorkers...
