WHO: Robert Stacy McCain
LENGTH: 774 words of protest against New York Times columnist David Brooks's fake conservatism
THESIS: David Brooks hates Real Americans (see: Sarah Palin)
WHY HE'S SO SURE: "His snooty just-so story about talk-radio hosts raging in "spittle-flecked furor" ought to tell you what profound contempt David Brook has for conservatives."
WHAT BROOKS IS: neurasthenic geek
ONLY REASON MCCAIN DIDN'T WRITE A 5,000-WORD TAKEDOWN: busy working on an article about trip to Kentucky
SUMMARY OF BROOKS'S CAREER:
This endless anti-"populist" crusade for Big Government Republicanism has been a constant of Brooksianism since the neurasthenic geek first started pushing his disastrously influential "National Greatness" idiocy in 1997. That blunderheaded misconception of misinformed thumbsucking earned Brooks membership in The Republicans Who Really Matter, and he's been toiling diligently to destroy the Party of Reagan ever since.
Read my lips: David Brooks is not a conservative! He never has been and never will be. His entire career has been devoted to using his influence over the Republican Party elite to prevent conservatives from exercising influence over the party's direction.
