At First I Thought, "Maybe The Laziest, Most Cossetted Potato-Bug In American Punditry...

 

...might want to go a little easy with the insisting that other people need to 'earning' stuff:" (h/t Heather at Crooks and Liars):

BROOKS: I frankly think [President Obama] hasn't earned that. I think you've got to earn that with your conduct and he hasn't been as bipartisan as I think he should have been. Not that the Republicans have either. They've probably been worse, but you know, you've got to earn it.
I mean, leaving aside for the moment that the entire premise of Barry-O not being bipartisan enough should have gotten Brooks slathered in hamster musk and tossed into the snake pit, does someone that ridiculously shiftless really want to start the ball rolling on holding people to standards of any kind?

 But then I remembered that this was David Brooks we're talking.

And that the entire Beltway establishment is built on giving David Brooks one, utterly unearned freebie after another while never holding him accountable for a damn thing.

So never mind.

If I had an inner Richard Pryor, it would be going ballistic right now.

Yeah, I heard this when it aired, and a long string of profanity came to mind.

WTF is he talking about? The seething hatred and disrespect shown to the first black president by DFB's party during SOTU speeches--"You Lie!" and clapping and cat-calling because he has no more campaigns to run in--somehow doesn't permit the President to tweak these barbarians back a bit?

Fk U and the horse you rode in on, DFB! You default almost immediately to some not-so-subtle racism here. The Pres isn't the compliant house Negro you think he shoulda been. When you talk about "earning" stuff you're really saying he doesn't "known his place" when confronting The Crazy Party.

What a nauseating, useless concern troll you are, DFB. "Not as bipartisan." Fk you!
