Better late than never, I suppose (H/T: Richard McEnroe; don't miss his visualization of Brooks' epiphany).
Still, I get a kick out of stuff like this: "We moderates are going to have to assert ourselves. We’re going to have to take a centrist tendency that has been politically feckless and intellectually vapid and turn it into an influential force." Sure, Dave; you and your RINO pals can don Viking helmets and toss bon mots back and forth on your spear points.
The middle of the road: rallying point for David Brooks, Chris Buckley and countless generations of dead possums. Include me out.
Update: Robert Stacy McCain applies the blowtorch.
