Well, it's no surprise that David Brooks thinks Democrats are out of control when this is his notion of what would constitute a truly Dionysian orgy of hate:
If the [Democratic] convention program reflected the collective party subconscious, the first night would feature a life-size rubber Dick Cheney doll, and the speakers would take turns throwing it around the stage.
Throwing a rubber doll around a stage? For David Brooks, is that what constitutes the utter abandonment of social restraint? What a wuss.
