More from Babbling Brooks
Tuesday column from David Brooks--not yet on the NYT home page--scores the "dullest" campaign ever, in his view. Some of his points rinf true, but false equivalence runs rampant and he happily cites nutty Peggy Noonan not once but twice. Favorite line has to be, in a section on the "intellectual innovation" days of olde: George W. Bush going deep with the claim of being "a Compassionate Conservative." Anyway, David Brooks calling something dull has to be contender for biggest pot calling a kettle black.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
