Brooks likes Bush’s chances vs. Dean

Good discussion of David Brooks’ Republicans for Dean op-ed from the Times today over on Metafilter. One pithy sampling:

That being said, most of Dean’s appeal to me is the prospect of seeing him mercilessly beat the crap out of Bush in the debate if we get to have one this time around. Dean isn’t so much about the left wing of the Democartic party as he is about the exasperated wing. But unless Clark somehow screws up or fizzles out he’s money as far as I’m concerned. The point is to win.
