Ars Longa Fundraiser, Day Five: The Most Dangerous Columnist In America

Behold, a Tip Jar!


"The slow blade penetrates the shield." -- Gurney Halleck, Dune

As America's greatest Brooksologist who published his first essay on the subject of David Fucking Brooks almost exactly 13 years ago today, I can say without fear of contradiction that Mr. Brooks deals in poison.

Slow poison. Sweet, honeyed poison.  Poison gradually drip-fed through our most respectable institutions and into the heads and hearts of the nation's elite influencers over the course of decades.

Mr. Brooks' poison does not kill outright.  Instead, it is a designer drug engineered to weaken the overall immune system of our body politic.  To make the country susceptible to a horde of other, opportunistic Conservative diseases which a healthy nation could fight off easily.  He is the slow blade that pushes, pushes, pushes against the shield.  He is the ablest enabler of the greatest lie of our age -- the Big Lie of Both Sides Do It.  The Pope of the Beltway's high and holy Church of Both Siderism.

Pope Bias the First, Bishop of the Acela Corridor, aka, Vicar of Both Sides, Successor of the Prince of the Kristols, Supreme Pontiff of the Washington Beltway, Primate of Fake Centrism, Archbishop and Metropolitan of Humility, Sovereign of True Conservatism's City State and Servant of the servants of the Church of Lyin'tology.

And over the past 13 years have taken up my doodle stick from time to time to do my small bit to immortalize Mr. Brooks in graphic form.



The affable little man who is, in fact, Number Two.

There are dozens more, but you get the idea.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

I doubled my usual contribution, because of your Photoshop skills, even though you haven't created the Bannon-Harkonnen image I long to see.

Dr. BDH, many thanks!

This is as close as I've come using the Baron as a template.

While attempting to make my annual trip to the tip jar I was flabbergasted to find that PayPal had declined my card. Investigating, I found that my recent software purchase was deemed suspicious, imagine the humiliation. I cleared up the issue with my too-big-to-fail bank forthwith.
Thanks for the help in uncovering this matter.

The most dangerous columnist ?

I seen that beer advertisement. And Mexico is paying for it.

Has there been any polls taken about the most trusted opinion writers?

They do it to news networks?
