David Brooks on why the 2012 presidential race is ‘incredibly consequential and incredibly boring all at the same time’

He offers 9 reasons:

  1. Intellectual stagnation
  2. Lack of any hint of intellectual innovation
  3. Increased focus on the uninformed
  4. Lack of serious policy proposals
  5. Negative passion
  6. No enactment strategy
  7. Ad budget myopia
  8. Technology is making campaigns dumber
  9. Dishonesty numbs
