David Brooks slams Palin and ruminates about Obama's intellect, high-quality advisors, and social intelligence. Worth reading, whatever side you're on. Remember, Brooks skews conservative, and just last week was praising aspects of Palin's run.

Can you all imagine the uproar if ANY Republican ANYWHERE spoke of Obama like the many Democrats do in the media of Bush, Palin, McCain?
Unbelievable hypocrisy. Actually, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. It is the usual persoanl destruction by smear and name calling on the part of the Dems. Imagine the lies and name calling about Obama and the results!
Ok, time for all you kool-aid drinkers to start claiming that is already happening with
+ Palin bringing up BOs long association and mutual support with Ayers, who blew up people and buildings in the 60s, wished he had done more of it in 2001, put $160,000,000 into "education reform" through the Annenberg, but didn't once put in reading or math classes ( the money went to "social indoctrination" classes), went to Venezuela 2 years ago and praised Chavez and the "revolution through education" Chavez was doing there. Hmmm, remember Chavez tossing out all the books that taught about democracy and capitalism in the public schools, then jailing private school directors and teachers who refused? But, of course, that alliance has nothing to do with how Barack really believes. He probably didn't know what Ayers really thought, even though he endorsed an Ayers book and worked with him on many projects. Or, maybe he just focused on the good parts of Ayers ( which are???), and ignored the bad parts.
+ Or his long association and mutual support with a racist "black liberation theology" "pastor" who damned America, calls for the destruction of whites, is arm in arm with Farakhan, has a master's in Islam ( he is a Christian preacher??? I have to still look it up, maybe he also has a Master's in Christian Theology). I guess that alliance is just smear also. Has nothing to do with how Barack really feels, I am sure. Just a lack of judgement,..or maybe he really didn't know what his church was like after 20 years in it.
+ Or, Barack going to Kenya a couple years ago WHILE SENATOR in Illinois and campaigning for a COUSIN for the Presidency of Kenya, who is an avowed Marxist, and who signed an agreement to put in place Islamic Rule if he was elected. He lost the election, then went on a campaign of terror until the ELECTED fella decided to "power share" to stop the killings and torture. But, of course, THAT alliance has nothing to do with how BO really beleives either. A little lapse in judgement, maybe..or maybe he didn't know what his cousin was like? Or, maybe just supporting family ties, that is all ( except, gosh, forgot to send $25 to a HALF-BROTHER in Africa to double his annual salary).
+ Or, the fact that NOT ONCE has BO voted for a tax cut for ANYONE, ANYWHERE, after promising tax cuts to get elected in Illinois both times. In fact, just the opposite. But, actually, I understand. He has seen the light and NOW understands that tax cuts stimulate our economy, so he is going to do it now. Unless he thinks its "not fair" that people have opportunities to go to school and work hard, then actually keep their earnings. I wonder if he gave any of his good grades to anyone else with bad grades?
Oh wait...we can't get his school records, we have no idea how and what he did in school. So, we can't know that either.
The fact that this guy has made it this far in our system is a very scary portent of where we are heading.
