“The Service Patch” by David Brooks (TIMES, 5/25/12)


I wonder how many times David Brooks saw that James Stewart movie about a small town banker?

Since this “moderate conservative” has raised the subject of “schmuckdom,” it has to be asked: Hasn’t entrepreneur Mitt Romney been exposing the fact that he has been a schmuck for a good deal of his life?

And doesn’t Brooks himself come off as an even bigger schmuck by his frequent defense of greed and ruthlessness in the government-protected capitalist system which prevails here in the good old USA?

No wonder this brain scientist, who claims to take his cue from Dostoyevsky and the Book of Job, has to insist that he is a moderate conservative.

What a pretentious schmuck!
A. Garavente
