Brooks is taking a shot at fellow NY Times columnist Paul Krugman, no?

PrestoPundit

And, according to QandO, a shot at Timesman Bob Herbert as well.

It posits that there was a master conspiracy to play on the alleged Klan-like prejudices of American voters, when there is no evidence of that conspiracy.
No evidence of the conspiracy; no need for evidence of "the alleged Klan-like prejudices of American voters," in the eyes of the NYT 'conservative.'

Ah, so the Great Communicator didn't intend any slight. What would Isocrates say?

Alternatively, we could study Bonzo Goes to Bitburg

I'm a conservative and a Republican but I get mighty tired of having Ronald Reagan brought up all the time like some sort of god from the past. It's late 2007. Talk about NOW not 1980. That said, I cannot stand Paul Krugman and most who write for the NY Times (exceptions are John Burns, Michael Gordon, and David Brooks most of the time not always).

Here's why the Clinton machine is so efficient: it spent a monumental amount of time and expense trying to knock down reports that Hillary and her campaign staff stiffed a waitress.

On the other hand, so-called evil genius Karl Rove let candidate Governor Bush get dinged in 2000 when he failed to respond ferociously when Texas Dems concocted the deceptively-named "James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Act," which Bush vetoed, sparking cries of racism that finally culminated in http://www.gwu.edu/~action/ads2/adnaacp.html>that disgusting NAACP TV smear ad.

Hey, he's the last Republican president that was really, really popular. And sadly, nobody of his caliber seems to want the job this time around. We'll have to hear about Reagan at least as long as the Dems continue to harken back to JFK.

Actually, I think the Clinton campaign is badly handling this tip story. And it will probably cost her Iowa.

Well, Johnny Ramone had some sense:

Infamous in the punk community as being one of a few hardened conservatives, Johnny Ramone made his political affiliation known to the world in 2002, when the Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After thanking everyone who made it possible — clad in his trademark T-shirt, ripped blue jeans and leather jacket — he said "God bless President Bush, and God bless America," [1]. He said in an interview, when questioned on his conservatism, "I think Ronald Reagan was the best President of my lifetime."

Despite the dopey lyrics, Bonzo Goes to Bitburg is a great tune, especially the backup vocals.

Not having been a fan of The Ramones, my respect for Johnny Ramone just went up 1000%.

Andy Vance

Well, according to Joey, Johnny was a member of the KKK. Natural affinity, I suppose.

Prestopundit - Yes, Krugman has. I found a recent column by Krugman that repeats the slur, and mentioned it in my own post.

From the reviews I have seen, I suspect that it is in Krugman's latest book, too.

Perhaps DB wants to hang on with new management.

States' rights is racist? News to me, since "states' rights" is more properly termed "Federalism", and since Federalism has been around since the inception of our country.

By the by, the concept of Federalism was regularly attacked by both Hitler and Stalin. I don't know for sure about Stalin, but I'm fairly certain that Hitler wasn't an advocate of integration and racial equality.

Just because a group of racist rednecks has co-opted a term does not necessarily mean that that term should not be used in its proper context.

And since, from the discussion here, it is apparent that no one knows that Federalism is generally the same as "states' rights", doesn't it make sense that the Reagan campaign would cook the idea of Federalism into the more user friendly and understandable "states' rights"?
