David Brooks is scared.

I love when he plays the "concern" card.

"What's happening to Lieberman can only be described as a liberal inquisition," writes Brooks. "Whether you agree with him or not, he is transparently the most kind-hearted and well-intentioned of men. But over the past few years he has been subjected to a vituperation campaign that only experts in moral manias and mob psychology are really fit to explain."

"I can't reproduce the typical assaults that have been directed at him over the Internet, because they are so laced with profanity and ugliness, but they are ginned up by ideological masseurs who salve their followers' psychic wounds by arousing their rage at objects of mutual hate," Brooks adds.

Pauvre Joe. Nobody understands his appeasing the Republicans like Bobo. Especially not those white-hooded, anti-Semitic, foul-mouthed netroots!

Honestly, if Lieberman weren't a good friend to AIPAC, do you think Bobo would give a shit?
