David Brooks is a Conservative in the Same Way that I am a Marxist

Yeah, I know, it’s like shooting a crippled bream in an aquarium, but the fishy Mr. Brooks keeps inviting ridicule, so when Stacy McCain catches him checking out Obama’s pants, your best bet is to stand back so ya don’t get any onya.

I think Brooks was less interested in Obama's pant leg than his inseam.

After reading that, um... ew.

On the bright side, such effusive, unrequited politically motivated manlove does bring out the best of snark in people, doesn't it?

Cloaca, indeed!

Best line in the piece,

Theirs is a conservatism that squats to pee...

I'd call it a bromance or a mancrush except that it might make Brooks seem, er, manly?

Squatting to pee simply increases his standing with the Wewublicans.
This is a requirement for a post-partisan, post-racial, post-spine conservative of record for the paper of record.

Besides, squatting makes it less likely that he will wee-wee all over Obama's agenda. This is sorta analogous to shaking hands with your gunhand in the old west.
Of course you could accomplish the same thing by raising both hands over your head and shouting "no mas,no mas" but I won't go there since I have been transcending the bounds of good taste way too often lately.:)

This actually sounds like an idea for an Indian/Native American version of "Paleface" or "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight".

"You should talk to the head of our 'War Council', Squats To Pee."
