Is it my imagination, which has admittedly been overstimulated by medicating my hangover with weed, or is this David Brooks column incredibly funny and true?
Stopped clock, etc.
Brooks actually wrote that? Well, I'll be damned.
The human imagination is a powerful thing.Here's something my own imagination (admittedly not as powerful as some persons) has come up with:MICFiC - an acronym every child should knowI'm formally suggesting an easy-to-say acronym for the people in power, a slight elaboration of a phrase from President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Farewell Address in 1961 -MICFiCM ilitaryI ndustrialC ongressionalFi nancialC omplexThe second "i" in MICFiC makes the pronunciation more evident -mick-fickIf you are not in the habit of reading Chris Floyd's Empire Burlesque, may I direct your attention to it nowhttp://tinyurl.com/3ya8b8
funny and true with caffeine and no hangover. Too bad Brooks has rotted his brain being a GOP shill; he could instead have become a decent writer.
I'm pretty sure someone other than David Brooks wrote that column. My evidence is as follows: It is not crap.
Fine. Point taken. I would just like to see Brooksie write a column just as perspicacious about the republican candidates debate...easy enough I would think...the material would practically write itself...
True? Maybe. Funny? Only if your black humor extends to the fact that one of these people is likely to have their finger on the nuclear trigger in a year-and-a-half, and that only because the Republicans have screwed things up far beyond their nearly bottomless capability of lying and confusing the voters...
Funny? It is beyond hilarious, and as perceptive as it is hysterical. I haven't laughed that much since I read "I _ _ _ _ _ _ Ann Coulter i _ t _ _ a _ _. Hard.", former title holder.Who knew? Maybe the reason this guy writes nothing but undiluted crap is because deep inside there's been this astute political satirist hungering to come out. Bad career choices must play havoc with one's disposition.Brooks obviously missed his calling. The Biden bit alone was worth the price of admission, although who could knock the "weeping quietly"? Come to think of it, almost every line was funny....To Thomas Daulton:Okay. I'm so shallow and am singularly responsible for the upcoming World War III because my "black humor extends to the fact that one of these people is likely to have their finger on the nuclear trigger in a year-and-a-half, and that only because the Republicans have screwed things up far beyond their nearly bottomless capability of lying and confusing the voters".BTW, Thomas, it wasn't only the Republicans. But I think you know that.Exit laughing.
"Habit of Waking and Baking" Ha! I open the New York Times each morning upon rising, too!
What's going on here? David Brooks is usually one of the stupidest men alive. This doesn't bode well for Obama, getting pwned by a known idiot.
That is funny and true, all right. I'll fuck David Brooks now. (Though I admit, he looks rather embalmed in that photo, and I'd rather not fuck embalmed people. Just a hangup of mine.)But as john b. said, the question is whether Brooks will do as well with the Republicans. Or will the R-chip that has been planted in his brain cause him to start projectile vomiting and thrashing around on the floor if he tries?
Isys -- I wasn't making any sort of comment or judgment about Dem supporters [in this particular case]. Only the candidates. Just echoing the old Hightower lament, "If God had meant for us to vote, He would have given us candidates."
isys - i read the piece you mention - i'm not 100% sure that it was fiction, either
