Last paragraph of David Brooks’ Times article yesterday (underline added for emphasis): “Tuesday, as President Obama visits London, we will get a glimpse of the British political culture. We Americans have no right to feel smug or superior.” — The underlying assumption being that Americans sit around thinking to themselves, Gee, I feel so superior to the British.  I’m not thinking about my job security, my family, or whether the Miami Heat will win a championship. I’m feeling smug today that I’m not a Brit.

The amusing thing about David “Pant Crease” Brooks is how much his articles reveal about him without his awareness.
