David Brooks

is on something called "book leave" from his job writing 800 words about whatever he wants twice a week for the New York Times, forever.

As a matter of minor historical interest, "book leave" is a phrase I never encountered even once during my 30 years and four separate careers in the full-time labor force, or in the five years since I became a permanently underemployed statistic.

Obviously I have made some mistakes.

Well, you could sell your soul to William Buckley, but you'd have to exhume him first.

Maybe Bill Kristol?

DG, you might be accused of honesty to the point of recklessness. Hard to call that a mistake. It is a shine better than reckless dishonesty.

That's going to give me nightmares.

Mistake number one, DG, is your full-throated support of Droning™ women and children in return for those lucrative Obama For America checks and your Obamaphone!

Benghazi!!!

DEATH PANELS!!!

Wait, did that sound like a tea-bagging America hater, or a disciple of Saint Glenneth Greenwald?

I get the two mixed up now adays.

We should have a contest to try to guess the name of Bobo's new book. I'll take the obvious "God and Humility at Yale."
