Cult of Perspicacity

David Brooks is just sure that the magic is fading: “…those in the grips of Obama Comedown Syndrome began to wonder if His stuff actually made sense. For example, His Hopeness tells rallies that we are the change we have been waiting for, but if we are the change we have been waiting for then why have we been waiting since we’ve been here all along?”

Quite obviously, we’ve been waiting for a leader who, at least, isn’t a sociopathic mental midget. That would be the same sociopathic mental midget whom Brooks once remarked: “[m]any will doubt this, but Bush is a smart and compelling presence in person, and only the whispering voice of Leo Tolstoy holds one back.”

Sorry David, you’re a partisan hack who can’t recognize the difference between an idiot political scion and a genuinely brilliant and dedicated public servant who is inspiring several generations of multi-ethnic, bi-gender Americans of every economic class to reject your tired and mindless partisan bullshit. “The magic” not only continues, it has just turned you into the toad that many of us always saw you for.

WTF? David Brooks is hearing voices -- and one of them is Leo Tolstoy?

Having dubbed the response to the Obama campaign a "cult," Brooks and his pals now pronounce the phenomenon dead. And all this with over eight months to go before the election. What will they do for an encore?

Yes, and like many of his fellow millionaire, pampered, press poodles, the voices of rough-hewn working class people across the country.
