In praise of nothing

Shorter David Brooks:
I know there's a pony in here somewhere!
Read this (if you must):
The future belongs to post-Bush conservatives. If you want a glimpse of that future, read the speech David Cameron gave earlier this month, which electrified the British Conservative Party conference. Cameron has learned the essential lessons of Bushism. He offered a positive, governing conservatism. He talked about helping moms afford child care and helping the people of Darfur survive. "A modern, compassionate conservatism is right for our times," he declared.
Then ask yourself, um...why hasn't Bush "helped the people of Darfur survive"? Why hasn't Bush "helped moms afford child care"?

This isn't even mistaking the wish for the deed. This is taking the picture on the frozen dinner box for a five-star meal at Le Cirque.
