David Brooks Battered

“Has there been any indication that Barack Obama does not believe in the ‘old-fashioned bourgeois virtues?’ Has the man been anything but bourgeois to a fault? Has he not believed in ‘order’ so deeply he’s sacrificed his presidency to its maintenance? Has he not been so ‘self-disciplined’ that he’s regularly accused of being robotic? Let’s leave aside the inflammatory rhetoric of ‘personal responsibility’: Has Barack Obama ever been accused of being late? And if not, where the hell does ‘punctuality’ come from?”
— Yowch. The Times David Brooks gets severely beaten down for writing a sentence that is “either frankly racist or frankly forgiving of racism.”
