Good job, David. You’ve ensured yourself of another year on the job at the Times.

And now David may empathize with us and how we feel about our current Pres-ent/Community Organizer.

I’m surprised if anybody actually gives a rats ass about what David Brooks thinks.

I have a feeling that David doesn’t like strong women, maybe he has some fears of the ladies. Such venom just isn’t politically realistic. Deep problems with him maybe...a closet lib....

David Brooks is the joke. I’ve watched him spitting all over himself while filling the faux role of “conservative” on various talking head shows.

Sarah Palin isn’t a problem . . . the sickos who insist on trashing her 24/7 are the problem. They need to be called on it. Do not engage in the “Sarah” conversation; instead ask why the speaker is saying such things.

No one cares what the token conservative has to say. After all, he has what, three readers? Palin’s already sold more books than the Times’ readership.

....calling her a "potential talk show host."

That's the part I liked. Dissing talk show hosts....like GEORGE SNUFFLEUPAGUS!

Poor George is too stupid to know he was dissed.

The only people who call him conservative is the govt controlled media. To the rest of us he is a joke. He give Lawn Jockies a bad name...at least they stand upright on two legs.

David Brooks always looks like he is playing the
intellectual in a 1940 B movie.

The way he ranted out his hate for Sarah sounded like a person with real personal problems.

Sarah causes Mr. Brooks to re-experience certain unpleasant castration fantasies for the first time since he was in college.

This sounds like a case of he doth protest too much methinks. If she were really not worthy of being taken seriously, then I doubt an article about her would be the topic of his column. When is the last time I was the topic of his column? Me-irrelevant, Sarah Palin-not irrelevent, by their own measure........

I have yet to see his conservative bonifides produced. He is constantly upset with the right and not Obama. He also writes for the Times. He is irrelevant and talking stupid to get noticed. No one on the right reads him.

Perhaps Mr. Brooks is concerned because he understands that Gov Palin does not take him, or the rest of the Beltway bandits seriously either.

It's time to clean house and allow Brooks and his ilk to find their true calling in life --- like selling Sham-Wow's or Mighty Putty.

Why do intellectual lightweights like Brooks and Noonan always work so hard to make themselves appear intelligent? After about five minutes of either of these idiots you figure it out. They’re clueless.
Three words you’ll never hear any of these fools utter,
“I don’t know.”
They’re like Al Gore. They figure if you ask them a question it means you don’t know the answer, so it doesn’t matter what they tell you.

I could not believe that Snoozeweak cover was real. The picture is hot but the line “She's bad news for the GOP and everyone else.” Its not even a question. They openly admit their hatred of her. Even Thomas, the socialist turd, can go to hell. Glad no one is reading this rag anymore.

Fair enough, Brooks has turned himself into a joke, one who still hasn’t figured out what a mistake Obamao is, an intellectual legend in his own mind, a self-appointed prophet of the Republican Party who is snookered by the Obamarama spoof on America. ...Truth be known, Brooks voted for Obamao because he loves Biden’s mind. It can’t get any dumber than that folks.

If she's such a joke, why does he care? If Palin was so insignificant, why does Brooks get so passionate in attacking her?

I have an answer for this. Tens of millions of Americans disagreed with Brooks and he basically fears that we're too stupid, that after all the efforts of the liberal media, WE still don't get it. So, Brooks has to escalate, shout louder in the hope that we'll finally get in and share his opinion about Palin.

Obviously, this strategy isn't going to work. Brooks, relax. If Palin is so incompetent, time will expose this incompetence and unsuitability for higher office. And conservative Americans, unlike all of your liberal friends, don't turn their political leaders into Messiahs. And how's that hopenchange working out with the 'serious', 'intelligent', 'literary', 'smart', etc. Obama aka Ofumble?

How the Presidential campaign with the 'experienced' McCain work out? Who, who was successfully portrayed as erratic and hot-tempered by the Obama campaign. Palin hasn't made any of these huge mistakes and she's the dummy? Okie-dokie.

David Brooks can’t help himself. He wants desperately to be part of the in crowd and dare not think for himself.

This is a quote from Brooks about his first meeting with 0bama in 2005:

“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,”

Sounds to me that Brooks has been lusting after 0bama, with or without pants, for a good long while now, so I don’t take anything he says seriously.
