This afternoon, David Brooks sucks his thumb at almost interminable length on the topic of the future of the Republican Party. Will Trump stick around after he loses, bigly? No, David allows: “My guess it that if Trump gets crushed in the election, millions of Republicans will decide they never liked that loser and jerk anyway.”
Nope. Wrong guess.
Proceeding from that incorrect premise, Brooks reasons his way to the conclusion that the “ intellectual future of conservatism will be wrestled over at a series of forums at the Center for Social, Cultural and Constitutional Studies at the American Enterprise Institute.”
I kid you not.
David is a nice fellow. Dr. Aardvark and I look forward to his weekly appearance on the PBS Evening News.
He’s so nice, in fact, that I’m not even going to try to sell him the Brooklyn Bridge.
