To the Backlash mobile!

As we get closer to Election Day, the conservative harping at McCain and Palin is growing stronger by the day.

Consider this from New York Times columnist David Brooks, who is NOT a fan of Sarah Palin… as evident in this quote from a luncheon he attended today. Brooks said of Palin;

“[Palin] represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party. When I first started in journalism, I worked at the National Review for Bill Buckley. And Buckley famously said he'd rather be ruled by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty. But he didn't think those were the only two options. He thought it was important to have people on the conservative side who celebrated ideas, who celebrated learning. And his whole life was based on that, and that was also true for a lot of the other conservatives in the Reagan era. Reagan had an immense faith in the power of ideas. But there has been a counter, more populist tradition, which is not only to scorn liberal ideas but to scorn ideas entirely. And I'm afraid that Sarah Palin has those prejudices. I think President Bush has those prejudices.”
Don’t hold back David, tell us how you REALLY feel…
