    but there are class traitors.  It is debatable whether FDR truly was one, because he sought to save capitalism by reforming it.  Nonetheless, coming from Brooks, who seeks to save capitalism by opposing any reforms, attacking the wealthy on behalf of the wealthy on class loyalty grounds is a joke.

    Brooks lacks intellectual honesty.  Nothing more needs to be said.  He is a hack.

    He has no original ideas and merely repeats the same simplistic themes over and over.

    Like Gertrude Stein's comment regarding Oakland, intellectually with Brooks, there is no there, there.
