Emotional and Ethical Dwarfs

in Politics

Speaking of all-too-many
successful politicians, David Brooks — in his New York Times column today — notes that "their sensitivity
synapses are still performing at preschool levels" and that they "have
an almost limitless capacity for self-pity."

In other words, politicians are children disguised as
adults – persons who ought to be playing with wooden blocks while
seated at their little desks in Romper Room rather than playing with
our liberties and resources while seated at their mahogany desks within
marble-domed monuments to their stupid power.
