Drool bucket alert: David Brooks tries his hand at humor, fails miserably


Chief Obama drool-bucket-carrier and pant-crease-lover, David Brooks tried his hand at satire in today’s New York Times. It did not go well for him, but provided a non-stop stream of entertainment on Twitter.

I'd like to thank David Brooks for showing everyone just how hard it is to write comedy http://t.co/FdGg9KgV

Look at this uber-snark from pseudo conservative David Brooks. If I hated Romney this would make me love him http://t.co/cMk30aV3

So did David Brooks come in late from a media party, realize deadline was almost here, and ask himself, "What would Maureen write?"

4 years ago it was "the crease in his pants" that was going to make #Obama a great President. Poor David Brooks. #NYT

@SamSeder: Found David Brooks' "How To Write Bad Satire" piece in today's NYT very helpful.” Yup that deadline sneaks up fast some wks huh?

David Brooks should have focused his ire on the odious non-clothes-staining antiperspirant industry.

David Brooks has heard of this "humor" thing and would like to try it.

Sadly, some seem to have the mistaken idea that Brooks might actually be conservative, instead of the water boy for Obama.

Brooks is what the NYTimes calls a conservative, right? @nathanr MT @PhilipTerzian David Brooks' 'Humor' isn't http://t.co/GGYvqs4a

Remember how he tried to hide the fact that Obama told him there weren’t actually any shovel ready jobs for more than a year? He’s no fan of the conservative movement.

But wait — it gets even better! It seems that some readers think Brooks penned it to help Mitt Romney by making a mockery of political writers.


So David Brooks' column was a parody meant to help Romney? That's even funnier than the column.

Predictably, the Left loves it.

The David Brooks thing about Romney is utterly apolitical: it's about Romney's lack of character. Still, it stings (I hope).
