The Preposterous Mr. Brooks! By Political Cynic

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/03/opinion/brooks-a-choice-not-a-whine.html?_r…

I lost my patience with Mr. Brooks after reading the first paragraph of this propaganda and will only quote that paragraph. I did read the remainder of the essay, but I fear anything else will lead to a loss of what is left of my civility. I quote aforementioned paragraph:

“Hostility toward the Supreme Court has risen sharply since Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. upheld the Obama health care law. People are apparently angry that the court didn’t rid them of a law they detest. But that’s silly. If Americans want to replace this thing, they should do it themselves.”

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
