Jeffrey Sachs says what I would say if I had two minutes on national teevee:
“Unbelievable,” Sachs said, shaking his head. “Because who has been wrong more consistently than anyone in this country? It’s been David Brooks.”Of course, I would come packing actual quotes from actual David Brooks columns, or perhaps this short video I shot of David Brooks, live and in person, lying his ass off --
Sachs, who appeared on the show to discuss a recent column arguing against US involvement in the fight against ISIS, clarified that he was only talking about Brooks’s foreign policy. But within that topic, according to Sachs, Brooks’ arguments led to unmitigated disaster. “Eleven years, every single column about this issue, wrong. ‘Go into Iraq.’ ‘Don’t be hesitant.’ ‘It’s all a great success.’ ‘We won the war.’”
“It’s unbelievable that this is the person we’re quoting,” he continued. “Krauthammer? Same way. Eleven years in spreading disaster. No solutions. This is what we say? This is the only thing the United States can do? Please.”
-- but in the end it would not matter.
As I have said a thousand different way in the +2,000 posts I have written documenting the towering wrongness of David Brooks since 2005, the puny fact that he has been horribly wrong about everything since forever will never be enough to dislodge him from his media throne, nor is there any force on Earth strong enough to pry the Sage of the Acela Corridor's many, terrible ideas out of his humble, humble hands.
Bad fish, this Elite Conservative Memory Hole. It's not like going down to the pond, chasin' malkins or tommycods.
This Memory Hole...swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', down you go
So welcome to permanent, despised exile from polite society, Jeffrey!
