Babbling Brooks

I missed this when it came out the other day as I had stopped reading David Brooks' columns almost altogether.  Now I remember why.

The piece is a long rant about how irresponsible and immoral the GOP has become under the sway of the "movement", as he calls it.  I'm guessing he means the Tea Party, although he doesn't name names.  Anyway, my favorite line from the fellow who routinely poses as a conservative:
The members of this movement do not accept the legitimacy of scholars and intellectual authorities.
Does he mean the scholars and intellectual authorities who got us into this mess?  Or is he just referring to himself?
