Sharpen it up.

David Brooks brings back Patio Man!:

Patio Man is surprised at how much the bankruptcy of Sharper Image has upset him.

I’ve been watching here and there on the conservative in-fighting going on at The Corner. This is my new favorite epic burn between Palin supporters and Palin detractors (Brooks here, called Palin “a cancer”):

As for the first bit, Peggy Noonan complains that she doesn’t know what Sarah Palin believes, and Ross Douthat thinks she needs David Brooks as her speechwriter. Well, I no longer know what David Brooks believes. Last I heard from him was on the Charlie Rose post-debate show when he was gushing that it was like being on a hiking trip and looking out the tent every morning and being reassured that the mountain is always there and Barack is like the mountain: he’s always there. Maybe he can sharpen it up for the book proposal.

Heh. From Bobos to Patio Man to ????. I’m sure there is something on the way.

    I’ve never seen a journalist or writer more dependent on straw men than Brooks. Everything he writes is based on these characters which he seems to believe exist beyond a need to prove it.
