David Brooks has written what may be the newspaper column of the year so far — a hilarious distillation of Democratic boilerplate from this year’s convention. A sample:
We must close the book on the bleeding wounds of the old politics of division and sail our ship up a mountain of hope and plant our flag on the sunrise of a thousand tomorrows with an American promise that will never die! For this election isn’t about the past or the present, or even the pluperfect conditional. It’s about the future, and Barack Obama loves the future because that’s where all his accomplishments are.
Read the whole thing. Twice. And leave a comment.
