A lot of you get angry when I say that most of the totebaggers I know like to rock out to the smooth sounds of David Brooks. But it’s true! Last weekend, I spoke with not one but two older totebaggers who insisted on telling me about some brilliant thing they’d heard Bobo say. One was wisdom he’d dropped on the Snooze Hour, the other was some recent column.
How do I reason with people like this? I told them the truth, that Bobo simply produces propaganda that is designed to appeal to people like them, but, frankly, it’s hard to tell someone this without insulting them.
