David Brooks on why electing Republicans is counter-productive

NYT: The Road Not Taken http://mobile.nytimes.com/2011/07/19/opinion/19brooks.xml

I can summarize this whole piece with these rhetorical questions…would you hire someone who hates dogs to be a dog-catcher?  Would you want an atheist to lead your sermon? 

Of course not, you don’t want someone who a) hates the thing or b) doesn’t believe in the thing to run the thing.
