David Fucking Brooks

On Trump:
We’ve got this perverse situation in which the vast analytic powers of the entire world are being spent trying to understand a guy whose thoughts are often just six fireflies beeping randomly in a jar.

Ah, DFB, the king of noble Whig fanfiction to ease the jittery nerves of wealthy shut-ins. Ever since the wheels came off of the Bush administration and his gig insulting liberals magically transformed into his current, better paying gig of rewriting all of the inconvenient parts of conservative history as a tale of noble Whigs navigating a treacherous world infested with evil hippies, all guided by the magic measuring tape of David Fucking Brooks, which calculates the distance from the latest Republican atrocity to his latest imagined Evil Hippie Outcome and plants his little flag of humility and moderation right at the very mid-point, exclaiming that to be the only real sensible position.
The fact that the Evil Hippie Outcome is fictitious and the other fact that his entire enterprise gives cover to the extremists on the right are just small details for Mr. David Brooks, the highest priest in the High and Holy Church of Both-Siderism.
But hey, that give-political-cover-to-monsters dollar is a pretty darn good dollar.
Hat tip to Driftglass, who has been relentless on the DFB beat for years and years.

NY Crank, "flashing" would be a better word than "beeping".

I see also that Paul "Give Him Another Six Months" Friedman is also piling on.
