Congratulations, Mr. Brooks!

It's only March, but Paco Enterprises has decided that David Brooks is so far ahead on points, that we can justifiably present him with the 2009 Beclownment in Journalism Award.

For amazing feats in cognitive contortionism, logical prestidigitation, and slack-jawed hero-worship, we hereby bestow this award on Mr. David Brooks.



Update: Linked by The Other McCain. Thanks, Robert!

When I see the word "sophisticated" or the phrase "complex situation" employed by he left, I think of arrest.

That prestigious artfully carved ornament needs a hole so he can wear it around his neck. And credit to the designer for introducing the cleverly branded golden arches as eyebrows. Mehaul.

I don't think you can do that.

I think the UN outlawed such blasphemy.

Mr. Brooks went to confession, said the requisite number of mea culpas and (presumably) was sprinkled with the Holy Spittle.

He is Whole Again. Leave him alone!

Larry: The UN wouldn't like it, eh? Well, if any of those blue helmets pop up at the Paco Command Center, they'll get a hot welcome.

Nonetheless, the White House made a case that was sophisticated and fact-based.

"Sophisticated"? "Fact-based"? Is this like "the reality-based community", and "fake but accurate"? Who knew the Obamanists would tie the language in knots like everything else.
