Babbling Brooks – A Continuing Series

David Brooks makes fun of the way Kerry speaks? That takes some chutzpah.

In all fairness, I can understand why Brooks is confused by Senator Kerry’s ability to look at an issue from different perspectives. That’s a sign of thought, sentience, and intelligence, which are alien concepts in the mind of a Republican ventriloquist’s dummy. The very idea that someone could actually think through an issue and see that changing circumstances change the issue never occurs to him.

In a way, I envy him – bopping through life singing the same song, unaware of what’s going on. Sure beats thinking.
