    Typical David Brooks column circa 2004:

    "We elitist educated urban Northeast types are awful mean to the folks in the sticks. They don't like that much. On behalf of my class, I apologize to those folks and applaud them for voting for the Republican candidate I personally happen to support."

    Typical David Brooks column circa 2010-13:

    "Gosh, some of these Republicans are really out there. Not me. I'm good ol' reasonable Dave. I sure hope Obama will be reasonable like me and ignore basic macroeconomics by implementing expeditiously the recommendations of Pete Peterson & Co. Otherwise he'd be just as unreasonable as those Tea people. And I sure hope he's not that."

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      I guess I'm slow - but today's column takes the cake. It bothers me because it's such a lie, and it will be repeated by other Republicans during the confirmation process. "Obama is cutting defense to support the welfare state"

      The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
