The Political BrainBusters

Westen to Brooks: "Raise up off me, Bitch!"

In today's Huffington Post, Drew Westen confronts David Brooks over the review he had written in the Times Book Review, and how! I just wanted to toss this up because Westen's new book is a terrific one. I read it earlier this summer and found it very insightful, and it instantly shaped the way I view candidates on the stump. Recommended reading for any political junkie.

Drew Westen is a psychology professor at Emory University in Atlanta, and the author of The Political Brain. David Brooks is a mostly conservative op-ed contributor to the New York Times.
