Useless idiot

Ah David Brooks, what ever would the left half of the blogosphere do without your inanities to gnash our teeth at?

(Daniel 4:33)

“The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar; and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles feathers, and his nails like birds claws.”

Anyway, Bobo displays his contempt for 3/4 of America:

The Big Sleep - New York Times
The first element in this calm was the rapid fizzling of the N.S.A. scandal. We have been treated in the past year to a panoply of anticlimactic frenzies. For example, we have seen the periodic flaring and the inevitable noneruption of the Valerie Plame affair. Every few weeks, perhaps coinciding with the full moon, the left half of the blogosphere will arise from its habitual state of paranoid rage and soar into a collective paroxysm of anticipatory glee over the thought of Karl Rove's imminent indictment.

Alas, the indictment never comes.

But even by that standard, the fizzling of the N.S.A. scandal is remarkable. Most Americans seem to have looked at the facts and concluded that having to open your suitcase in the airport security line is a far bigger invasion of privacy than having your phone records in a list of four trillion numbers on a computer somewhere in an agency trying to fight terror.

really, Dave? Care to resign in disgrace if the indictment does in fact arrive? Habitual state of paranoid rage - when did you become a former Nixon speechwriter? Sounds like Bobo is a little prickly after being (rightfully) ridiculed so frequently.

I'd also ask Mr. Bobo how he came up with the assertion that nobody cares about telephone surveillance. You aren't basing it on suspect polls are you? Just because the proletariat hasn't (yet) stormed the White House with guillotines, burning effigies and waterboards doesn't mean that everyone is happy to surrender all their phone records to the incompetent schmucks in the Bush Assministration who feed you information.
