The Brooks Paradox

He is a Keyboarding Cabbage, declares the indispensable Barbara O’Brien (indispensable, not least of all because, feeling nauseous after reading Brooks’ column, I turned to Maha’s post and experienced the healing laughter):

David Brooks has a column in the New York Times today in which the Keyboarding Cabbage waxes philosophical about President Bush’s genius in ordering the surge, which as you know has accomplished its main goal of enabling the forging of a stable and sustainable government in Baghdad.

Oh, wait

Barbara cites two articles — Derrick Jackson’s “Big Oil and the War in Iraq” and James Glanz’s “Government Study Criticizes Bush Administration’s Measures of Progress in Iraq” — as further evidence of the surge’s success.
