The rapture of the illiberal man

Right-wingnut NY Times columnist David Brooks is in rapture over Bush's "re-election." He is so rapturous--and so out of touch with reality--that he thinks a drowning person's frantic thrashing and gasping for air is "rage."

Here's how he ended today's column: "Some of the liberal reaction reminds me of a phrase I came across recently: The rage of the drowning man."

Liberals are enraged at Bush's "re-election," but we're not drowning. That would require being in over our heads--like David Brooks.
