David Brooks is just a lying shill for the neo-cons
Brooks and his neo-con pals brought you this Iraq war. He is nothing but the mouthpiece for Kristol, Perle, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney and the other neo-cons who demanded this war to test out their ME domino theory. He has NO BUSINESS appearing as a PBS pundit.

1. But you notice even he conceded that Kerry had
given the speech of his life.

And for HIM to say that . . . well, Satan's wiping frost off his windows.

11. I heard him giving kudos to Kerry
and BTW why the f*ck do they call him the liberals favorite conservative? Did he give that name to himself ala michale Jackson or did some liberal actually say we loved him?

12. It's because he appears on all the ostensibly liberal outlets
He has regular slots on PBS and NPR nightly news, and he has a twice weekly column in the NY Times.

3. But even HE was at a loss for words...
...when Lehrner asked him what Repugs do now? He responded with something like "change their clothes because they've been sweating for an hour" I suspect he wanted to say "change their shorts"

4. Is he doing that annoying little talking through his toothy smile thing?
And those little "humphs" at the end of words dealing with democrats. And grinning about how fucked up IraqNam is and isn't it just too cute that so many people died for a lie he helped perpetuate.

I cannot abide that fucking piece of pond scum.

Nobody enrages me more than that POS.

6. I think that Brooks actually compared Kerry to Teddy Roosevelt,
a liberalish Republican. For Brooks, it was the ultimate compliment.

Usually, however, Brooks is predictably neocon.

7. I'm still fuming over what he said yesterday
He said Edwards usually talks without a podium, and he figured the reason why Edwards used one last night was "so as not to upstage Kerry".

Eat. your. words.

10. He looks like a self-hating little man
He probably is not a happy person.

Deep down he knows he is living a lie.

14. He should lose his NYT column
I am so sick of the "Left wing" NYT giving him (along with Safire, Friedman, and MODOW -although she hates everyone) a forum

15. Regarding the Kerry video
tonight, he called it propaganda. Quite profound. He then commented that it left a lot of things out. Sometimes that happens when you condense sixty years into ten minutes. He has the weasliest smile ever. PBS could do much better.

16. Welcome to DU
PBS is a lost cause. They owe their souls to their corporate sponsors.

17. Brooks is a light weight.
How he ever got on the NY Times staff is unbelievable. Even their pukes have a pedigree.
