David Brooks, Comedian! A Fictional Speech to the DNC

This came out in yesterday, but I missed it because -- well, honestly -- I was too busy with Palin-apalooza.

But this piece by David Brooks is brilliantly funny, and it's far too good to pass up. Who knew Brooks could be a comedian too? Enjoy his fictional speech to the DNC, and it pokes fun at everything political and rhetorical -- here's a taste of it:
We must close the book on the bleeding wounds of the old politics of division and sail our ship up a mountain of hope and plant our flag on the sunrise of a thousand tomorrows with an American promise that will never die! For this election isn’t about the past or the present, or even the pluperfect conditional. It’s about the future, and Barack Obama loves the future because that’s where all his accomplishments are.

*Giggle!* Bravo, David. Gladly now do I forget your previous mess about "harmonious collectives"!
