  1. Oh my. Looks like another unwanted stink-bomb from Dale. I'm imagining a classified ad, like one of those from Animal Control for pet adoptions:BLOGGER, FREE TO GOOD HOME[insert photo here; woeful eyes pleading with us]Housebroken, vaccinations up-to-date, older but still lively indoor/outdoor blogger. Some minor behavioral issues. Doesn't get along well with other bloggers.

  2. If David Brooks was a bomb-thrower, he would no doubt throw like a girl.The point is: public life demands the suppression of thought for reasons other than truth.Every society demands some of this. But what happens when the reality suppressed is so great, and the convention with which it is suppressed so false? Does David Brooks really think Elena Kagan is that different? She's just like her boss–capable and vapid. Title for next post: Boring Enough for Barry David Brooks is no more a hypocrite than any of his fellows, but can he really be so oblivious? Why can't one of these guys just once consider the implications of careerism?

  3. Note that Kagan is \”honest\” but somehow more \”will[ing] to suppress\” her thoughts than the average careerist, which is profoundly dishonest. Context, I reckon…The girl can't help it,she was born to please…

  4. Isn't it something how repetative and predictable all these middlebrow mainstreamers are? I understand why they get acclaim, because they seem to the masses like sensitive yet brash intellectuals with thoughtworthy ideas. But MY LORD are they dull! I know thirty bloggers and five times as many blog commenters who are more interesting, intellectually rigorous and fresh than the lot of them.Is widely dispensed intelligent commentary condemned to go the way of Arrested Development thanks to the natural biological limits of its fan base??{phone typed}

  5. If David Brooks was a bomb-thrower, he would no doubt throw like a girl.I'm going to store that away and long for the day I can casually throw it into a conversation.
