Shorter David Brooks

Here’s his explanation about why dealing with Iran is problematic for both John (“Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran”) McCain and Barack (“Let’s talk”) Obama:

We don’t understand the Iranians because the Iranians don’t understand themselves.

Why don’t we just send Dr. Phil over there and let them hold him hostage? That would make everybody happy: he could help them with their issues, and we wouldn’t have to watch him any more.
