Other People's Reactions to Iowa

George Will and David Born to Kill" Brooks have weighed in on Dean's defeat in the Iowa Cacuses in their latest columns. Compare the quality of Will's (a man who I am not a fan of) and Brook's work. In his article, Will attempts to determine Dean's weaknesses, the strengths of Edwards and Kerry and the future of the Democratic primaries. Not brilliant stuff, but I believe, solid work. Brooks on the other hand spends 3/5 of his column to talk about a hypothetical 55 year old school teacher who is suppose to represent Democratic voters. While it isn't nearly as egregious as a lot of his other essays, this one is still nonsense and is not fit to be printed on the New York Times Op-Ed page.
