Remember when in the days following the 1994 midterms, Peter Jennings offered this pinhead elitist opinion on the election results:
Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums: the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming. It’s clear that the anger controls the child and not the other way around. It’s the job of the parent to teach the child to control the anger and channel it in a positive way. Imagine a nation full of uncontrolled two-year-old rage. The voters had a temper tantrum last week….Parenting and governing don’t have to be dirty words: the nation can’t be run by an angry two-year-old.
In a mature nation, President Obama could go on TV and say, “Listen, we’re doing the best we can, but some terrorists are bound to get through.” But this is apparently a country that must be spoken to in childish ways.
In other words, in Brooks’ view, much like Jennings, America is a collection of temper-tantrum throwing children who are too immature to handle the truth.
Actually, we can handle the truth, Mr. Brooks. We’re just not likely to hear it from the Little Black Man-Child or anyone in His administration.

At the core of the tea party was a principle that I agreed with so much that I became a conservative activist during that time period. That core was principled, fiscal conservatism and a desire | Read More »
