New York Times Crashed-and-Burned-and-Smoking Watch (David Brooks Edition)

David Brooks:>And the Angels Rejoice: I’ve been incredibly moved over the past few weeks to watch squads of corporate executives come to the White House…. These events have heralded a new era of partnership between the White House and private companies, one that calls to mind the wonderful partnership Germany formed with France and the Low Countries at the start of World War II…Abu Muqawama invokes Dave Barry:>abu muqawama: “You certainly do remind me of Adolf Hitler”: Dave Barry understood this way back in 1982:>>**Compare your opponent to Adolf Hitler.** This is your heavy artillery, for when your opponent is obviously right and you are spectacularly wrong. Bring Hitler up subtly. Say: “That sounds suspiciously like something Adolf Hitler might say” or “You certainly do remind me of Adolf Hitler.”Why oh why can’t we have a better press corps?
