On Political Cliches

David Brooks today weaves together a marvelous tapestry of political cliches in his Gray Lady opinion piece. It's worth a read for a nice chuckle.

What's funniest is that the Times's sophisticated readership seems deaf to the reality that he is lampooning not Obama so much as current political speechmaking.

We figure he'll do something similar after the RNC, much to the disappointment of the Obamaniacs who presently scorn his lack of esteem for their Chosen One. And we'd like to see what Brooks could write after listening to some sermons in evangelical churches.
