I once wrote a parody of one of David Brooks’s columns, but thanks to his own descent into banality, it’s gotten to the point that he does it better than I can. For example:
Right now, the Tea Party doesn’t matter. The Republicans don’t matter. The economy and the Democrats are handing the G.O.P. a great, unearned revival. Nothing, it seems, is more scary than one-party Democratic control.
Need I say more?
