How would you describe a political commentator who believes that Tea Partiers “have no sense of moral decency”, once said the conservative movement “has no coherent belief system”, and admires Barack Obama in part because of his “perfectly creased pants”?
Well, if you’re the mainstream media you would put that commentator – David Brooks – solidly in the conservative category. No, seriously! Anyone to the right of a guy like Brooks is on the fringe. Loopy. Extreme. And the media loves this, because Brooks bashes the Right pretty much all the time. Just like they do! How convenient.
Kudos to Charles Krauthammer for setting the record straight here. Listen as the panel reacts to the news with nervous laughter, like children being told for the first time that Santa Claus isn’t real. So precious.
