Shorter David Broder: "Why can't the Democrats negotiate in good faith with President Bush? I seriously don't get it."
Meanwhile, one of Broder's fellow clueless denizens of the Sunday Post Op-Ed page, Deborah Howell, may have found a nut:
If columnists aren't interesting and provocative, they won't be read. No newspaper wants to receive thousands of protests, but that is not as serious a problem as having readers turned off by dullness. A provocative commentary that might result in protests will win every time over a ho-hum column that readers would pass right over.Has David Broder been having his way with us these past couple of years? Is his incessant yearning for an impossible "bipartisanship" just a pose to maximize his audience? Can he really be so canny?
