    Trademark of his class. Just like calling Michael Steele "articulate" would be a trademark of his class. Just like f*cking you over just for sport is a trademark of his class.
    Add to "Banal and unthreatening" a little self-righteousness, and the occasional self-deprecating quip in a vast sea of journalistic pandering to power and money,  filtered through what Brooks might call the  "mediating institution" of establishment punditry and what you have is David Brooks.

    What is truly horrifying is that David Brooks is not alone. There are hundreds of people just like him all over the media and even more in government.

    I resent that. I demand snark, and overly so -- Markos Moulitsas.
