So when is Brooks endorsing the crease in Obama’s trousers again?

He sounds like Maureen Dowd, but she does snark better.

Head slap. Yep, this is who the NYT holds up a the “conservative” viewpoint.

Sickening.

Sounds like Brooksie hasn’t given up on 0bama yet.

That seems to be the problem with people.. they fall head over heels in love with Obama, then find ... no matter what... they just can’t quit him.

It’s that emotional bond thing, I guess.

Oh I guess Brooks thinks this is funny, ha ha ha.

What a moron.

He’s turned to zero long time ago.

Mitt needs to add a crease to his pants so Brooks will like him.

Obviously, a tongue in cheek attempt at satire, it misses the mark.

I crack up when I see people like Brooks and Scarborough try and introduce themselves as conservatives.

David Brooks is a stain in the shorts of a true conservative.

Ah, PBS’ token “conservative”. All I have ever seen him do is make goofy faces in tandem with Haynes Johnson on the NewsHour, neither of them looking, or sounding, like they could string together an original or rational thought.

I really dislike Romney, but this piece is awful.

This trash is supposed to be what NYT readers think is intellectual humor?

It is such a parody, that I was half-expecting Brooks at the end to break through into some reality — but he didn’t. His essay is just fantastic nastiness imagining itself to be clever.

Is it really funny to disparage someone because of what he wears, or because he happens to have nice hair? Or make fun of a person merely because he is rather normative in his behavior?

I found the comments following the column also very illuminating: most of the readers thought the column was great! We are in different worlds, because I can’t see that there is anything admirable or illuminating about this drivel, and yet Times readers seem to relish it, and it resonates with their “thinking.” And, I guess, that does (after all) tell me something!

There are a lot of people out there who look human to me, but are so different from me that they might be members of a different species.

That is the most childish thing I’ve ever read. The twerp should be embarrassed.

He plays a republican at the NYT like Jeff Daniels plays a republican on Newsroom.

What’s the point?

I think Brooks has a little man crush going on.

"Read more at NYTimes"???????

No, thanks!

Do the Dowds and Brookses not understand that were a mere model for the "Arrow" shirt company running against the current golfing attire candidate that the Bill of Rights provisions which protect their industry's freedoms would be more secure?

Unless, of course, he would prefer employment in a new and official American version of "Pravda"? Ooops, that's where he works now, isn't it?

What a waste of time and ink!

David Brooks has had a man-crush on Zero since the days Barry was running in 2008. PBS still claims he is the conservative alternative to Mark Shields. The Shields and Brooks segment of the PBS News Hour is a joke.

Brooks consistently goes to the left of Shields. It is funny to see Shields’ expression. He knows he is supposed to be to the left of Brooks but sometimes it is just not possible.

Brooks is a complete phony and in love with Obama and the liberal’s intellectual viewpoints. Complete fraud.

REally? Is everyone really this obtuse?

Brooks, our favorite Beltway conservative to bash was actually making a commentary about LIBERALS.

Brooks was skewering the liberal media and liberals for the constant twisted narrative that they spew.

Vanity alert! Posted this today: Brooks' Folly - Is It Satire If You Audience Misses The Joke?

Brooks makes Megan McCain and David Frum look like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh.
