For the second time in a week David Brooks has gone against popular opinion (he was one of the first to call a spade a spade at the start of the Newsweek fiasco), and I have a feeling people will catch up with him on the Filibuster matter too. The climax of Brooks' argument:

"The answer, to be blunt, is that some of the moderates are moderates out of conviction. They do have courage. But many moderates are simply people who feel cross-pressured by different political forces, and their instinctive response is to shrink from pressure. They lack spirit to take risks, to actually lead."
Tough but fair.
