Uncle Dave Picks . . . Nobody!

In today’s NYTimes, opinion writer David Brooks rails against what he sees as the utter failure of the two big conventional political parties. It’s fun to read, but I don’t like his insistence on charging both with equivalent incompetence. For once, I’d like him to run down the GOP without having to bash the Dem’s equally.  He sounds as if he wants to be the Wizard who  transplants intelligence, compassion, and courage into the zombies in Washington, DC. Read his column here, and get the NYT is you want more.

If the Wizard is a Wizard who will serve.
Then I’m sure to get a brain, a heart, a home, the nerve!

    Waiting for a Kad Barma comment, I will venture that this column can’t be just against the Republicans without suggesting that the sons of Lord Keynes hold the clue bag.  They don’t.

    Mr Brooks’ complaint seems grounded in the idea that those values that sustained us for decades have gone away.  That may be the case, but he seems to be suggesting that the Federal Government is the solution.  I am not sure that is the case, except to the extent the Federal Government can right the economy.  On how to do that we have no consensus.
