David Brooks tries not to embarrass himself, embarrasses himself anyway

NYT's dim-witted columnist David Brooks is shocked, SHOCKED, to discover that Bush has no sense of fiscal restraint:

... But the White House is threatening to veto anything [responsible Republican senators and congressmen] do [about limiting the disastrous prescription drug benefit, which applies equally to wealthy older people with insurance]! President Bush, who hasn't vetoed a single thing during his presidency, now threatens to veto something - and it's something that might actually restrain the growth of government. He threatens to use his first veto against an idea he himself originally proposed! Have we entered another world, where up is down and rationality is irrational?

You think?
