David Brooks Takes a Dig at Rush LimbaughBy
This is what New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks wrote in his May 4, 2009 op-ed titled The Long Voyage Home:
If the Republicans are going to rebound, they will have to re-establish themselves as the party of civic order. First, they will have to stylistically decontaminate their brand. That means they will have to find a leader who is calm, prudent, reassuring and reasonable.
Brook’s statement leads to this set of questions:
- How did the Republican brand get contaminated?
- Who contaminated the Republican brand?
- Why do the Republicans need to find a leader if Rush Limbaugh is their leader?
- Why does the Republican party need to find a leader who is
- and reasonable
if Rush Limbaugh is all of these things already?
Are you listening, Rush?
Do you plan to kick David Brooks out of the Republican Party because of this op-ed piece, Rush?
Perhaps David Brooks foresaw the tumultuous talk Rush is tossing against Supreme Court nominee as chronicled at BarbinMD’s Daily Kos post ‘Racist Attacks Ramp Up Against Sotomayor’
