VDH on David Brooks

As some of you may have heard, David Brooks referred to Sarah Palin as a “cancer” on conservatism at a party in honor of the redesigned *Atlantic *magazine. Victor Davis Hanson has penned a far more thoughtful response than Brooks’ startlingly cliched and shallow comments deserve, but since VDH’s point about the nature of Sarah Palin’s conservatism and how it contrasts with Obama and Biden’s liberalism is broader than Brooks’ sniping, it deserves a careful read on its own terms.
