Although I generally regard the NY Times' David Brooks to be a hack and an apologist for the Republican Party, there are some signs that reason is creeping into his analyses. He wrote earlier today about the games being played by the far-right in the debt limit debate:
"The members of this movement have no sense of moral decency. A nation makes a sacred pledge to pay the money back when it borrows money. But the members of this movement talk blandly of default and are willing to stain their nation’s honor."
I am in complete agreement with Mr. Brooks on this one.
