How many times can David Brooks use the terms chaos and catastrophe in the opening paragraphs of his essay aptly titled ‘Health Chaos Ahead‘? And then beat to death the word cascade,in his gleeful policy fantasy about the coming failure of ‘Obamacare’,that un-enlightened,now, bastard child of The Heritage Foundation? The New Democratic agenda will be defeated by a concatenation of the failures of implementation; the Republicans will maintain control of the House and re-gain the Senate on demonstrable voter discontent. Mr. Brooks can’t seem to master his triumphalism before the fact! Or should we call it the most aggressive expression of hope?
