Eddie Haskell Brooks, along with fellow GOP bubble-dwellers Peggy Noonan and Bill Kristol, eagerly piled on Romney over his “secret video” remarks contrasting the nation’s makers and takers. Liberal outlets embraced these chin-pulling tools — elevating them as “key” Republican voices who speak for the right.

Despite the best efforts of the Democratic-professional media complex to gin up faux-rage over Romney’s remarks, however, several polls show that voters agree with Romney’s fundamental critique of the indulgent Democratic politics of victimhood, identity and dependency. Yep, Brooks has the pulse of mainstream America — direct from his hallowed bubble at the Fishwrap of Record.

Brooks shares all he knows about “ambition,” “motivation” and the “culture of America” through regular appearances with the insular clique of conservative-bashing snobs at taxpayer-supported “PBS NewsHour.” A cursory glance at Brooks’ biography shows that he has spent the majority of his life in New York City and Washington, D.C. He has worked for a raft of employers from The Washington Times to The Wall Street Journal to The Weekly Standard to The New York Times.
