    Brooks gets it right more than the other "conservative" wags, but that bar rests comfortably on the floor.

    Often he has correct observations, somewhat akin to the clock on my old POS Tappan range. I even changed it for DST, and it was still right only twice daily. (That exceeds Brooks!)

    One difficulty I have with Brooks is his writing. Since he works from talking points and dubious factoids, his writing is awful. Primarily it shows he has no consistent, well thought out notion of much of anything.  There really is no rational framework. I apologize for the crude description but it's true. He's like a whore without a cunt.

    It's good that he's learning as he gets older, but he's certainly a slow learner.

      "He's like a whore without a cunt."

      Brooks is a very lazy pseudo-intellectual.  He seems to have zero interest in actually dealing with the facts on the ground, and whenever I am confronted with that dipshit's unwanted opinion, I remember the salad bars at Applebee's.

        Is an apt description for sure! Lazy pseudo-intellectual!
