Speaking of Pavlov's Dog...

Have you seen David Brooks' column today? "Babbling" has been one of the biggest megaphones in the echo chamber for some time now, but he's really outdone himself this time.

Gushing with praise for the draft Iraqi constitution, he writes:
"The U.S. has orchestrated a document that is organically Iraqi."

H? U? H?

Is that anything like "virgin organic polyester?"

    But you forgot the punchline: "It's their country after all."


    Lovely how sweet he speaks of Gerecht, "a smart Iraq analyst." The same Gerecht who was quoted by MoDo just yesterday as saying "women's social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy."

    What a moron. And what a terrible waste of column space.


  2. Thanks for stopping by, Kerstin.

    Yeah, The Babbler's on my all time punk list.
