Do read David Brooks on the House’s failure to pass the bill yesterday.
Herewith, the comment I left. As you can see, I liked it:
Brooks no argument!
I have never been David Brooks’s greatest fan, but this column is the best he has ever written. It seems to me that it’s authority derives from being non-partisan. It discards all those ill-fitting labels that he invokes from time to time to describe himself. Fuelled by a restrained but not too restrained anger, it doesn’t care what anyone thinks and just unapologetically lets everybody have it. This is the mature David Brooks.
Now go fix the problem, David.
