As amused as I am at how much of an Obama fan Brooks has become, a gargantuan omission in this piece must be pointed out.

Brooks is missing the key dialectic of modern America that appears with the advent of Hollywood-- the oscillation between dignity and indignity, the pop culture of sacrifice designed to periodically drag those with dignity down to disgrace for profit, that is the very heart of our inherently perverse culture.

What fascinates me is the seeming desire that so many of these people have for this public flaying, one surely generated by the very idiotic burden of walking around with "dignity" yoked around one's neck.
