Read David Brooks today

I know he's not your favorite, Bo, but he is all over it today.

Money quote:

But there is a deeper assumption, which has marred Democratic politics for years. Some Democrats have been unable to face the reality that people have been voting for Republicans because they agree with them. So these Democrats have invented the comforting theory that they've been losing because they are too virtuous for the country.

Yeah, if David Brooks wrote columns like this every week, then I'd be a much bigger fan. As it is, I like his sociological (if that's even a word) columns, like that Red/Blue state article he did for the Atlantic back in the day, but I just don't see him as a partisan conservative. Which is fine, but the NYTimes should stop pretending like they have a balance on their editorial page just because Brooks showed up.

Anyway, I liked this column. Kedwards has been saying some wildly off-base shit lately, even for their campaign.
