Conservative Implosion

David Brooks asks: Do you ever get the sense the whole world is becoming unhinged from reality? Not the whole world, David, just yours.

Here's what Brooks says a little later: con is short for "conservative" and neo is short for "Jewish". This interesting linguisitic theory provides the foundation of his thesis that to criticize neocons is anti-Semitic. To be fair, Brooks has always been a bit of a nutcase, so maybe he's not representative of conservatives. What are others saying?

Speaking of anti-Semitism, Cal Thomas says:

Dean's wife is Jewish and his two children are being raised Jewish, which is strange at best, considering that the two faiths take a distinctly different view of Jesus.

(via Atrios)

Speaking of attacking Dean, The Washington Times tells us about an ad the Club for Growth is running in Iowa:

[A] farmer says he thinks that "Howard Dean should take his tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading ..." before the farmer's wife then finishes the sentence: "... Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs."

(via Left Leaner at Kos)

Brooks concludes in his piece: Partisanship has left many people unhinged. Concur 100%.


[Update: Josh Marshall over at TPM covers Brooks and a bit more today.]
