GOD BLESS DAVID BROOKS: What a great column yesterday, making fun of the decision by Tom DeLay not to put GOP delegates to next year's convention in New York on a luxury boat- because now, the delegates will have to mingle in the city with all the angry liberals.
Brooks overgeneralizes, of course, saying "New York" when he really means "Upper West Side of Manhattan." But I'll let that slide, for such gems as coaching Republicans to use phrases like "Nice weather we're having. Too bad about the climate of McCarthyism settling over the land." Brooks, like very few other writers, has complete understanding- and sympathy for- the complexities of the blue/red divide- and that's what makes him worth reading.
