I was not aware of that.
I did not vote for Barack Obama because I could not vote for a War Hawk. (I voted for Ralph Nader.) But I did vote Democrat elsewhere and again in the 2010 mid-terms. But apparently I am no longer a Democrat because Seung Min Kim tells the world that "David Brooks is Democrats' man of the hour."
My life is neither so pathetic nor desperate that I would need to make David Brooks the man of any hour. Nor would I need him to tell me what was wrong with the Republican Party. Nor would I trust him because he was now attacking the Republican Party. Seems to me that he is just a turncoat. I really do not trust those.
David Brooks was a lousy Republican. He can become an ex-Republican if he wants. But Democrats should be very wary of him and not be taken by one column.
