Then I found this by Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone who wrote this about the same article. Taibbi's translation of Brooks is classic.
Well it looks like he is at it again.
Ding, Ding, Round 2
Brooks wrote this Op-Ed on Jan 25th. Which he compares populism to racism in classic Brooks fashion.
Taibbi wrote a rebuttal to the Brooks Op-Ed piece today.
If your scoring at home.
Round 1: 10-8 Taibbi
Round 2: Down goes Brooks
