The purpose of a David Brooks op-ed is to introduce America to the real David Brooks. Fortunately, I have spent ten minutes researching the subject. I can provide you with a definitive biography and a unique look into the Swiftian soul of this New York Times political commentator.
David Brooks is a Jewish writer born in Canada on 8/11/61. To paraphrase Churchill, in his youth, Brooks was a brainless liberal but then slowly aged into a heartless conservative. In the early '80s, he wrote a parody of William F. Buckley, Jr. chiding the pundit for being "…in the habit of going into crowded rooms and making everybody else feel inferior. The evenings are reserved for extended bouts of name-dropping." As it turned out, Buckley was so tickled he invited Brooks to write for the National Review. It was during this time that he debated the world-famous economist Milton Friedman on live television. Yeah. That's right. Milton Friedman, MFers. Who's name dropping now?

New York Times columnist David Brooks makes a pretty decent comparison…
"In the Marx Brothers movie that is the Republican presidential race, Mitt Romney is Zeppo."
Ah, Zeppo. Everybody's favorite Marx brother. Remember that one thing he did in that one movie. That was so memorable.
